About Me

I'm an enthusiastic academic researcher for sustainable development. I apply network analysis and complexity tools to study the resilience of labor systems and the future of jobs, in face of the new digital technologies and climate change. In the past, I also contributed to research projects on innovation, policy impact evaluation, fisheries and marine policy. Below, you can find an overview of my research and projects. Get in touch!
