In 2012, I earned my Ph.D. in Anthropology. Now I am teaching at the College of Staten Island of CUNY and also conducting research.
I grew up in a multicultural environment, with friends from different ethnic backgrounds. My experiences and feelings were deeply influenced and shaped by the plurality and diversity of the cultures I came into contact with. The interdisciplinary environment of my academic training has given me the opportunity to collaborate with people from different backgrounds and to understand the research topics I undertake from different perspectives. Ethnographic fieldwork in indigenous communities provides me with important opportunities to interact with and learn from local people from a holistic perspective.
I like reading, writing, technology, cooking, music, exercise, etc. In addition, I am also a pet lover.
I hope to share my academic research through this website.
