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.

I'm interested in the politics of 'crime & punishment', that is, in how by criminalising and punishing the state produces and conducts the polity (or at least it contributes to). I look at this critically, by trying to uncover its conditions of possibility, and historically, since I believe that history is the only way to access our present condition. Additionally, my work has a strong normative component, that is, I try to imagine ways to overcome oppressive/violent ways of dealing with social conflicts and harms.

From this perspective, I have carried out research on restorative justice, urban security and intercultural conflict management, as 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 recent papers on restorative justice 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 critical history of the legal and policy regulations of restorative justice in the UK; 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 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.
