Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin
I am currently Alexander von Humboldt Research Fellow at the Landscape Ecology Lab, Humboldt University of Berlin (DE), doing research within the field of sustainability science. I work at the interface between urban planning and ecology to investigate how nature can make our cities healthier, more livable, and resilient to climate change. My current research focuses on urban densification and its environmental and social impacts. More in general, I am interested in the relation between urbanization patterns and wellbeing, and in innovative planning approaches that integrate ecological knowledge. Previously Postdoctoral Fellow at the Center for Environmental and Climate Science of Lund University (SE), I hold a PhD from the University of Trento (IT). I worked as external expert for the European Commission and I have experience as planning consultant for regional and local administrations.
