about.

I am an architect and a researcher. A graduate of La Sapienza University of Rome, Italy, and the Amsterdam Academy of Architecture in the Netherlands, I collaborated with various architecture and design organisations in the city of Amsterdam. I currently work as a guest lecturer at the Amsterdam Academy of Architecture and at the Gerrit Rietveld Academy, and as a senior editor at research platform Failed Architecture. I am one of the 2019 recipients of the Talent Development Grant, a funding program by Creative Industries NL (Stimuleringsfonds). My current research interests include the relationship between architecture and storytelling, feminist critiques of urban space, and the relationship between architecture and capitalism.
