I earned my Ph.D. in History at the European University Institute (2018) with a dissertation where I comparatively investigated the change experienced by the southern countryside during the 1950s and 1960s. Between 2018 and 2021, I was a postdoctoral fellow at the University of St Andrews (Scotland), working on the ERC-funded project 'Dictatorship as experience”. In September and October 2019, I was a guest researcher at the Fate of Nations (NTNU-Trondheim) to explore the development of mineral regulation in Southern Europe.

Since February 2023 I am a postdoctoral researcher at the University of Florence within the ERC project HumanEuroMed. My research engages in a comparative approach to the study of Spanish International Aid. I am also interested in the methodology of comparative history and in new perspectives and paradigms on Mediterranean Europe, that are able to break down dichotomies such as modernity and backwardness, ‘central’ and ‘peripheral’ nation-states of Europe.
