Her final dissertation was titled “Building bridges instead of walls? The role of non-governmental actors in the Humanitarian Corridors policy process in Italy and France”.
Before starting her PhD, she has worked for the International Catholic Migration Commission (ICMC Europe) on the European Resettlement Network, in cooperation with IOM and UNHCR, and the SHARE project for two years. At ICMC Europe, she worked on the topic of private sponsorship through advocacy, research and capacity building.
