I have lived in the United States since 2002. I moved from Italy to North Carolina to pursue my Ph.D. in Geography at UNC-Chapel Hill. In 2007-2008, after graduation, I taught geography courses at UNC. In the Fall 2008 I moved to Oxford, Mississippi, to teach in the Department of Public Policy Leadership at OleMiss.

I have a ‘special connection’ with Eastern Europe and Russia. In 1997-1998 I had my first college-level teaching experience at Moscow State Linguistic University (this is the official website of the university; it is only in Russian), in the Italian Department. Since then, my teaching and research has focused on the socio-economic transformation of the former communist countries. More recently, I conducted fieldwork research in Romania, Bulgaria, Slovakia, and Ukraine, to analyze the effects of Italian clothing and textile firms on industrial and regional change in Eastern Europe.

I was born and raised in Monfalcone; I went to college in Trieste, on the border between Italy and Slovenia. My closest friends and family still live there. I try to spend time with them whenever I can.

My hobbies include traveling, reading SF and fantsy novels, motorcycle riding, and fitness.
