Short Bio

I am currently a Tenure Track Researcher (RTT) at the University of Bologna, I conduct my research as part of the Marie Skłodowska-Curie Postdoctoral Global Fellowship project "PANICOCENE. Reframing Climate Change-induced Mobilities, which aims to investigate and analyze the ways in which media discourses and narratives can lead to stereotypes of climate-induced migration, thereby influencing the perceptions of readers, general public, and ultimately decision-making, and to propose a space for collaboration among activists, artivists, journalists, and academics on the issue.

I worked as a postdoctoral researcher in the DEAR project ClimateOfChange, examining the nexus between migration and the climate crisis, and the Horizon2020 project Welcoming Spaces, investigating the nexus between shrinking areas, migration and welcoming spaces.  The focus of my research was upon the themes of mobilities and migration, borders, climate change, ethnography, framing and narratives, and I utilized visual methods to work in a participatory creative manner with my participants to create space for plural narratives to emerge.
