Originally from Rome, I completed my BA in Interpreting and Translation (2014) at the University of Trieste (Italy), focusing on Italian, English, Russian and Portuguese. After graduating, I moved to the UK and for three years I worked as a lector of Italian at the University of Hull, where I also completed my MA in TESOL with Distinction (2017).

In October 2018, I started my PhD in Education at the University of Leeds and carried out a qualititative longitudinal case study on the the Year Abroad experience from the personal perspective of UK language undergraduates in Italy. I'm currently waiting for my Viva exam in December 2022, but in September 2022 I joined the Univeristy of Hull again, in the role of MA TESOL Lecturer.

I currently teach in the MA TESOL modules, including Contemporary Issues in Language Teaching, Dissertation Research Skills, Approaches to Language Teaching, and Advanced Professional Issues in ELT.

I also supervise MA TESOL and UG students in their dissertations.

Research interests

My research interests include (but are not limited to): the Year Abroad experience, the student experience, students' affective challenges, teaching and learning methods, language teaching and learning, the concepts of identity and culture. I am also very interested in the researcher-participant relationship and the co-creation of reality in qualitative research projects.
