Short CV

I held my masters´ degree in architecture at the IUAV University of Venice in 2017, and I am currently PhD student in transport and spatial planning at the Vienna University of Technology. Since 2018, I have been working as researcher for Eurac Research (South Tyrol, Italy). Here I develop European and local projects, scientific articles for international journals, as well as presentations for technical conferences. Since 2022, I am project manager for Eurac Research of basic- and applied-research projects.

My research is focused on the accessibility of rural areas. Within this domain, I work on: (1) cross-border commuting and the improvement of cross-border public transport accessibility; (2) the potential impacts of collective transport automation on person-based accessibility; and (3) cycling tourism and accessibility.
