Keywords: platform capitalism; logistics; urban unionism; labour discipline; the impact of digital technologies;

Although my fields of research are primarily political philosophy and economic sociology, I like to range between disciplines.

I mainly deal with platform economics, processes of organizing in the urban context, discipline and organization of work, social and urban movements, logistics and the political role of infrastructure.

I mainly use qualitative research techniques but I also have skills in software analysys.

Within the PLUS project I deal with the new forms of informal unionism that have arisen around the expansion of the platform economy in urban contexts. Moreover, also for PLUS, I'm doing a field research on the impact of digital technologies on living and working conditions.

Previously, I was also involved in the relationship between urban spaces, regeneration processes and social movements.
