About me

I am a PhD student at the Doctoral School of Social Sciences, University of Trento, and I am currently based at Stockholm University as a visiting researcher.

I hold master degrees in Political Science (University of Pavia, Italy) and in Gender Studies (Linköping University, Sweden), and a bachelor degree in Intercultural Communication (University of Genoa, Italy). I have previously worked in international development and humanitarian assistance, in particular with the United Nations Economic and Social Committee for Asia and Pacific in Bangkok and with the United Nations Development Programme in Geneva.


My research interests concern the intergenerational transmission of attitudes and values related to resistance and resilience, in particular in indigenous communities or groups living under colonial domination. The aim of my PhD research project is to investigate and explain the different mechanisms of transmission of attitudes and values related to anticolonial resistance and resilience in Saami families. What is the role of the family in the continuous participation in resistance across generations, how does it contribute to the resilience of this indigenous group, and which patterns of transmission from one generation to the other exist? These are all questions that I aim to address in my study.

I work with qualitative methods, and I will use a comparative thematic analysis of material stemming from life history interviews to answer my research questions.
