I am a PhD in Sociology of Law and I currently work as a research fellow in the IRPPS-CNR ViVa project – Monitoring, Assessment and Analysis of the Measures to Prevent and Fight Violence against Women. From 2017 I am also honorary fellow in Sociology of Deviance (prof. Francesca Vianello) at the University of Padua and coordinator of the Master in Critical Criminology of the same University.
My main fields of research, teaching and study are the feminist studies in the field of gender-based violence, trafficking and prostitution, sexual and reproductive citizenship, discrimination of LGBTQI subjectivities included the criminal field, and of the production of discourses and practices of feminist and trans-feminist movements.
In recent years I have translated my experience of study and research on gender and gender-based violence also in social work, collaborating with the CAM – Counselling Centers for Perpetrators of Gender-Based Violence in Ferrara as co-leader of groups of men authors of violence.
