Personal profile


I joined Norwich Business School as a PhD candidate and Graduate Teaching Assistant (GTA) in April 2018, under the supervision of Dr Zografia Bika and Dr Brad McKenna.

I hold a Master’s Degree in Urban Policy from Sciences Po Paris (France) and a Bachelor Degree in International Sciences and European Institutions from Università degli Studi di Milano (Italy).

My research interests lie in the domains of entrepreneurship and of the sociology of public action, and my primary focus is on entrepreneurial emergence in hard-to-reach communities in the global north. My study is tightly linked with the INCREASE Valorisation Sociale project, an EU-funded INTERREG partnership between UEA, seven housing associations and two training providers in the southeast of England and in the north of France.
