Connect with me

I acquired a wide ranging international experience in research and in events management in the private and public sector and in international organisations whilst working in Italy, Thailand, Switzerland, France, Belgium and the UK. 

I have an undergraduate degree in Statistics and Economics from the University of Padua, Italy and an MSc in International Conference Management from Sheffield Hallam University.

Prior to joining Westminster, I was senior lecturer, course leader and global mobility coordinator at Sheffield Business School, Sheffield Hallam University. 

UG/PG events modules, dissertation supervision

My research focuses on event design and experience and the role of conferences in knowledge creation. I am also interested in Return on Investment and the value of meetings and events, and the impact of culture on international events.
