Research Profile

I hold a Joint PhD in Art and Technology (Paris 8) and Urban Planning (Rome La Sapienza) and have a background in development economics. My doctoral dissertation on the electronic music industry analysed the links between night-time economies, urban space, and techno cultures in London and Detroit. 

I am currently working on different publications focussing on the analysis of night-time economies and night work (see publications); and I am writing a book that develops the arguments of my doctoral research by providing a new understanding of the role of cultural and creative industries in the hi-tech economies of cities. 

More broadly, my interests fall within two themes: 1) inequalities, urbanisation and global development; and 2) technological innovation and the cultural and creative industries.
