I am currently researcher/adviser on refugees and migrants’ rights at Amnesty International’s headquarters in London, where I focus on abusive migration policies and labour exploitation. I conducted several research missions around the world, including in Liberia, Kyrgyzstan, the Kurdistan Region of Iraq, Egypt and Italy. I have also been working on the International Criminal Court, truth commissions and accountability in post-conflict societies and authored or co-authored numerous Amnesty International reports.
I have been working in human rights for over 12 years. Before joining Amnesty International I worked on children in conflict for the International Committee of the Red Cross and as an international law researcher for the Italian National Research Council. In 2009-2010 I spent some time as legal fellow with Advocacy Forum, a human rights NGO based in Kathmandu, Nepal, and as visiting scholar at the Centre for Socio-Legal Studies of the University of Oxford. I have also been working for Child Soldiers International.
I hold a Masters degree in public international law from the Graduate Institute of International and Development Studies in Geneva and a post-graduate certificate in diplomatic studies from the Italian Society for International Organisation. I am fluent in Italian, French and English and can find my way in Spanish.
