I am currently a Senior Teaching Fellow at the UCL Italian Department/SELCS and the convenor of the UCL BA Language and Culture. I am Pathway Representative (Cultures) for the first and second year of the UCL BA Arts and Sciences (BASc). Between 2011 and 2014 I have directed the UCL graduate programe in Gender Studies.
In 2009 I concluded a two years Post-doctoral Mellon Fellowship at UCL with a research project on migration and culture with a specific focus on the Italian case.
I was educated in Italy. In 2000-01 I studied for an MA in Translation Studies and Comparative Literature at the University of Essex. I returned to Italy to commence studies for my PhD in Literature at the University of Naples and combined my doctoral research with work as a research assistant at the University of Palermo. I was awarded my PhD in 2007 with a dissertation on the "Double works" of the Pre-Raphaelite poet-painter Dante Gabriel Rossetti.
