I am currently a Marie Skłodowska-Curie Fellow in the Department of Cultures, Politics and Society, University of Turin, working on a project entitled 'The value of alternative food networks after the crisis: An Italian case study'. Read my blog here.
Trained in economic anthropology (UCL, Goldsmiths), I specialize in the study of alternative food networks, particularly the production-consumption of organic food. My doctoral project looked at ethical foods in Western Sicily (Italy) and integrated the anthropological and historical literature on moral economies with that on social and ecological sustainability. After being based in London from 2004 to 2014, in 2015 I worked at the University of Bergamo as a member of the Working Group on Consumption, Networks and Practices of Sustainable Economies (CORES lab). My post-doctoral project in Bergamo centered on the recovered factories movement in Italy and its links with solidarity economies.
