I received my PhD in Politics in 2012 from the New School for Social Research. I am Research Associate on the POLITAGE project at the Free University of Bolzano. I am Senior Researcher in the Human Rights Center of the University of Dayton. My research focuses on civil society, new media, public-private partnerships, the role of non-state actors such as celebritiesNGOs, and business in the global governance of human rights, humanitarianism and development, and genocide. I live in the Italian Alps with my collaborator Andrea Carlà and two bambini.
