Undergraduate studies and PhD

Scuola Normale Superiore, Pisa During my undergraduate studies and PhD I was in Pisa, Italy, at Scuola Normale Superiore.


For my first post-doc I moved to Toulouse, (south of France), at the "Centre de Recherches sur la Cognition Animale"


Later I moved to the "Laboratory of Informatics of Nantes Atlantique" (a lab of the Ecole Polytechnique de l'Université de Nantes) in Nantes (France) Polytech Nantes


In 2009 I got a guest researcher fellowship from the "Complex Systems Institute of Paris-Ile de France" in Paris


I left Paris quite soon, as I was offered the opportunity to work in the "Centre of Interdisciplinary Mathematics", in Uppsala (Sweden) Ångstrom Laboratory, Uppsala


In 2013 I moved back to Paris, where I was affiliated with the "Paris Interdisciplinary Energy Research Institute", an endeavour of the Paris Diderot University to bring together researchers from sciences, technologies and the social sciences to develop interdisciplinary perspectives around issues related to population growth, increasing energy demand, management of natural resources and human development.


I currently work in the "Unit of Social Ecology" at the Université Libre de Bruxelles (Belgium).
