Biography

I am a Post-doctoral Researcher at the Department of Geography and Geology, Division of Geography, and at the Faculty of Law, of the University of Turku. During my Ph.D. studies, I was visiting researcher at the Law and Theory Lab of the University of Westminster, London. I defended my Ph.D. in Regional Planning and Public Policies in 2017 at IUAV University (Venice, Italy). I have a Master of Art in Philosophy and a Bachelor of Science in Digital Communication (informatics and communication) from the University of Milan (Italy). My curriculum is completed by my specific expertise in Information and Communication Technologies (prior to my Ph.D., I worked in the ICT field for 15 years).
I am the author of two scientific books, "Crime, Bodies and Space. Towards an Ethical Approach to Urban Policies in the Information Age", published by Routledge (in the series Space, Materiality and the Normative) in 2019, and "Undocumented and Their Everyday Lives. The Case of Finland", co-authored with Jussi S. Jauhiainen, published by Springer (IMISCOE Research series) in 2021.

Teaching

Teaching responsibilities in the MAAN7741 Systemschange.now – Systems Thinking in Global Change Research (Theme Humans and Change in Eco-Social Systems), 5 ECTS.

Research

Currently, I am carrying out two projects: at the Division of Geography I am studying the relationship between nature and well-being of immigrants in physical and digital environments (LUMODI project, funded by the City of Turku); at the Faculty of Law, I am conducting a research on how cybercrime and surveillance affect the spatio-legal dimension(s) that each individual materially embodies, and influence the design of urban space itself. My research draws on various lines of thought, such as information theory, information ethics, non-representational theories, public policies, surveillance studies, and migration studies.
