Biography

I am a Lecturer in Criminology at Edinburgh Napier University- School of Applied Sciences. I received a PhD in Legal Theory and History of Law from the University of Florence (2014), as well as professional certificates in mediation, conflict management and restorative justice awarded by IPSI & The Johns Hopkins University (SAIS) and by the Humboldt University of Berlin.

My main research interests are around restorative justice, conflict mediation and penal politics. I have conducted empirical qualitative research, policy analyses and historical-philosophical studies on these subjects as a visiting researcher at the University of Oslo, Cambridge, Durham, KU Leuven, as well as at the Max Planck Institute in Freiburg and at the International Institute for the Sociology of Law.

My most recent papers have been published in Theoretical Criminology, Criminology & Criminal Justice, Critical Criminology, Social & Legal Studies etc. Currently my research work revolves around two poles: 1) a comparative analysis of the incorporation of restorative justice into penal policy; 2) an empirical socio-legal research on development of restorative justice in Scotland focussing on the delivery at level of local authorities (funded by The Carnegie Trust, co-PI Dr Jamie Buchan) and on referral authorities' understanding of restorative justice (funded by Napier).

In addition to my research activity, I have worked as a victim-offender mediator, community mediator and trainer in conflict management/mediation for private and public organizations (Police, Social workers, Healthcare professionals etc.) in Italy, Norway and Scotland.
