I am a PhD Student in Security Studies and Graduate Teaching Assistant at the School of Politics, Security, and International Affairs at the University of Central Florida.
With an extensive experience in emergency management, I am currently researching on how to strengthen civil-military humanitarian coordination at the international level and how to consolidate local-federal emergency responses in the United States.
Prior to that, I was an Exchange Visitor Trainee for an Italian-American company based in New York City. Before that, I worked as a Geopolitical Analyst for several journals in Italy, focusing on security and international affairs. Also, I was a GIS Analyst for a project addressed to map the Italian World Heritage Sites promoted by the WARREDOC and under the patronage of UNESCO.
I earned my Master's Degree cum laude in International Relations - Peace, War, and Security with a thesis in International Law for Peace Process and a Bachelor's Degree in Political Science for Cooperation and Development with a thesis in Expert Systems for Humanitarian Emergencies both from Universita' degli Studi Roma Tre in Rome, Italy.
