Cohort(s): 2011/2012

Ph.D. Institution

University of Pisa, Italy


Prior to joining the EUI as a Max Weber Fellow I was a teaching assistant for the chair of Administrative Law and Adjunct Professor in Comparative Administrative Law in the Faculty of Political Sciences at the University of Pisa. There I completed my Ph.D. in Administrative Law in 2008, discussing a thesis on the methods of compatibility of individual freedoms and public protective action in counter-terrorism policies.
In the past two years I have studied the foundations of standard-based regulation of catastrophic risks, comparing the anti-terrorism security responses with the solutions elaborated in environmental matters. I published the findings of this research in a monograph titled ‘La regolazione del rischio e il sistema degli standard. Elementi per una teoria dell’azione amministrativa attraverso in casi del terrorismo e dell’ambiente’ (ES, Napoli, 2010).
Moreover, in 2009 I had a research contract at the Scuola Superiore della Pubblica Amministrazione (National School of Government) and in 2007 I spent a research term at King’s College London. In 2006 I had an internship at the Italian Data Protection Authority (Garante per la protezione dei dati personali) and since 2008 I have been legal consultant on public partnerships for the Provincia di Lucca.
In 2004 I graduated summa cum laude in Political Sciences (majoring in Law) from the University of Pisa and in 2006 I obtained the university diploma summa cum laude from the Sant’Anna School of Advanced Studies.
My research interests include Italian, EU and comparative administrative law, risk regulation, law and economics, data protection, and legal aspects of the fight against terrorism.
