Current position: salaried doctoral candidate (UTUGS programme)
As a PhD candidate at Turku University (Finland), I am conducting my doctoral research on the implementation of predictive policing in Europe and the interlocking role of private corporations involved therein. My background comprises a Master’s Degree in Law (Laurea Magistrale in Giurisprudenza) from the University of Rome “La Sapienza”, where I specialised in the antinomies of legal dogmatics about crimes of opinion and the defence of public order; and a Master´s Degree in Criminology and Sociology of Criminal Law from the University of Barcelona, where I deepened the linkage between austerity policies and repression techniques beyond traditional legal-formalist schemes. I am also a member of the Editorial Committee of the scientific journal ‘Crítica Penal y Poder’ issued by the Observatory of the Penal System and Human Rights (OSPDH) based at this latter University.
Area(s) of expertise: Critical Criminology; Sociology of penal control; Theory of the State; Theory of Police Power.
