I hold a BA in Political Science from the University of Bologna, Italy, a MSc in State, Society and Development from SOAS and a PG Cert in Social Research Methods from Birkbeck College. I have 15 years experience working in fragile- and conflict-affected settings in Sub-Saharan Africa and the MENA on child protection, VAWG, sexual and reproductive health, girls' education and youth. I have extensive experience in results-oriented and process evaluations and in designing participatory tools to collect data with children, adolescents and vulnerable groups. I am fluent in Italian, English and French, I have a good command of Spanish and conversational Levantine Arabic and have studied German.
