In March 2021, I obtained my master’s degree in Law from the University of Pisa with a thesis on consumer law as a means to combat greenwashing. After graduating, I attended advanced training courses focused on European projects’ management and sustainable development, which included a traineeship with the Institute of Management of Sant’Anna School in Pisa between May and August 2022.
Already during my master’s degree and advanced courses, I had diverse professional experiences. A common denominator was working with a multidimensional, multistakeholder and participatory approach to sustainability. From March to July 2022, I had worked as a facilitator of participatory processes in an inner area of Tuscany (Italy) supporting the local community and administration in developing a strategy for sustainable rural development. In addition, I have over 7 years of experience in educational projects on sustainability and active citizenship based on a participatory approach – both as a volunteer and a professional.
My PhD research in the PAGE group will focus on sustainable transformation of food systems and on the role of local food policies in this process.
