I am an assistant professor of sociology in the Department of Social and Political Sciences at the University of Milan. My research is primarily concerned with phenomena of social change, with a particular focus on socio-cultural factors and communication. Please visit this page to read more about my research agenda. For classes I am teaching or have taught, see this link. Media coverage of my research and my popular writing are available here.

In addition to ongoing research and teaching, I coordinate the Erasmus study exchanges undertaken by Communication M.A. students and serve as Faculty Representative on the Joint Faculty-Student Committee of the Department of Social and Political Sciences.

During the Summer 2018 term, I will be joining the University of Colorado Boulder’s Center for Media, Religion and Culture as a visiting scholar.
