My academic research and teaching experience focuses on the opportunities and challenges of digital communication technologies in Public Communication. My current research project investigates the use of social media in diplomacy, with a particular focus on online listening and monitoring activities through social media analysis.
I teach research methods and digital media at Western Sydney University, social media analysis and data visualisation at the School of the Arts and Media, University of New South Wales.
I hold a PhD from the Institute for Culture and Society, Western Sydney University, a Master’s degree in Politics of International Relations, and two Bachelor’s degrees (Communication Science; Political, Social and International Science) from Libera Università Maria SS. Assunta (Lumsa), Rome, Italy.
