I am a researcher, I graduated in sociology and then I enrolled in a PhD on social change (jointly provided by th universities of Firenze and Torino). I have been working on the welfare state, on poverty, on the housing condition and homelessness. During my fieldwork I developed a strong interest in qualititave methods for social research. I am also part of Opificio Sociologico, an association devoted to social research and dissemination of the analytic framework of sociology. This helped me focus on the joint processes of building knowledge and sharing it across different fields for practitioners as well as citizens.
