After graduating in Philosophy from the University of Turin, IT, and Radboud University Nijmegen, NL, I worked as a professional, between 2015 and 2018, for the European Association of Gender Research, Education, and Documentation (ATGENDER) and for the International Association of Labour History Institutions (IALHI). Additionally, from 2015 to 2017, I was research assistant for a project on postcolonial intellectuals in Europe at Utrecht University, NL. From 2018 to 2022, I conducted my Ph.D research on queer critique and its discontents at the University of Verona, IT, and Utrecht University, NL. My project, which focused on such authors as Michel Foucault, Judith Butler, Eve Sedgwick, Rita Felski, Robyn Wiegman, and José Muñoz, was part of the INVITE doctoral programme, co-financed by the European Union within the framework of the Horizon 2020 Marie Sklodowska-Curie Actions Programme. After working as a temporary lecturer from 2022 to 2023, I am currently an Assistant Professor in Gender and Postcolonial Studies at the Department of Media and Culture Studies, Utrecht University, NL.
