I have 10+ years of professional experience in the areas of agriculture, food and forestry. My work focusses on supporting participatory decision-making processes through the application of various facilitation techniques (e.g. World Cafè, Focus groups, Scenario workshops) in collaboration with public bodies, civil society organisations and businesses.

I hold a degree in Organic and multifunctional agriculture from the University of Pisa. Since 2009, I am a member of the Association of Doctors of Agronomy and Forestry in the provinces of Pisa, Lucca and Massa Carrara. Between 2007 and 2010, I worked on the analysis of short supply chains and alternative food networks at the Tuscan regional agency for development and innovation. Since 2011, I have been involved in the development of local food policies in Pisa and, more recently, in Lucca.

I am currently working at the Department of Agriculture, Food and Environment of the University of Pisa where I am responsible for providing support to planning, managing and reporting activities related to H2020 projects.
