I am Italian, from Turin, but I am currently based in the United States. My interdisciplinary research focuses on the interconnections between migration and urban environment in the Global South, with specific attention conveyed to the analysis of Latin American metropolises and the depiction of urban socio-cultural dynamics in literature and visual art. Together with my doctoral dissertation based on the analysis of the literary representation of the Italian migration to Argentina, I am currently working on a project that investigates the literary and artistic production of immigrant communities in Buenos Aires, Rio de Janeiro, and São Paulo conveying particular attention to dynamics of race, ethnicity, and social inequality. I serve as elected member of the Modern Language Association (MLA) Nominating Committee and as advisor in the Spanish Major Program. For the A.Y. 2020-21, I collaborate with the Global Development Institute and the Center for Latin American and Caribbean Studies of the University of Manchester (UK) as Visiting Research Fellow.
