Personal profile

Biography

I joined the University of Edinburgh Law School in September 2014 as a lecturer in Digital Media & IT Law.

Prior to joining the University of Edinburgh, I have been a researcher at the Programme in Comparative Media Law and Policies of the Centre for Socio-Legal Studies of the University of Oxford where I also helped to coordinate the Monroe Price Media Law Moot Court Competition.

I am currently a member of SCRIPT, a law and technology research centre based in the School of Law within the University of Edinburgh, a research associate at the University of Oxford’s Programme in Comparative Media Law and Policy and a non-resident research fellow of the Central European University’s Center for Media, Data and Society. 

Further to my academic activity, I have provided expertise on telecommunications and media law to a range of NGOs and international organisations, including the African Union's Mission to Somalia and the Council of Europe among others.

I received my Ph.D. in International Law & Economics from Bocconi University of Milan. My doctoral dissertation focused on the issue of pluralism and diversification of information in the European landscape of news media, combining a survey on media law and policy in a comparative perspective with elements of economic analysis and public choice theory. I also holds a laurea in Law from the University of Pavia and an LL.M. in Public Law from University College, London. I completed my law apprenticeship and was admitted to the Bar in Italy.
