I come from Cremona, Italy. I have studied economics and specialised in economic development and participatory governance reforms in middle and low-income countries. I have a PhD from the University of Tampere (Finland) on the education sector reforms in Cambodia.
In September 2018 I have co-founded Capability, a Finnish company committed to collaborating with projects and programmes to co-design and implement problem-driven solutions to governance challenges identified by local partners
I am an Associate Editor at the journal Evidence & Policy and a member of EduKnow at the Faculty of Education at the University of Tampere. EduKnow is an international research group which discusses and explores knowledge, power, and politics in education.
I have lived and worked overseas during the last eighteen years in Scotland, Spain, Finland, Nepal, Cambodia, Vietnam, the Philippines, and Indonesia.
In July 2017, I moved back with my family to Finland and we live in Tampere.
I am passionate about international development. This blog is my personal work and does not necessarily represent the views and opinions of any of my current or past employers or clients.
