Born and raised in Naples, I am the founder and the director of the political risk consultancy “Mediterranean Eye Risk Consultancy” based in London. I also collaborate with a number of universities around the world. I was the director of the Executive Training in “Global Risk Analysis & Crisis Management” and adjunct professor in International Affairs and Conflict Studies at Vesalius College (VUB) in Brussels until August 2018. In addition, I teach classes on Mediterranean history at the School for International Training (SIT) in Tunis (“Tunisia and Italy. Politics and Religious Integration in the Mediterranean“).
I have been working as a political and economic risk analyst since 2014. At the moment, I advise a number of organisations and companies in Europe and the US, particularly on Mediterranean countries and economies. I am a regular contributor to the publications of the Jamestown Foundation, and my articles focus mostly on security in the Mediterranean and Italian relations with post-Soviet countries.
I received my PhD in Middle East & Mediterranean Studies from King’s College London in 2015. In 2013, I lived in Istanbul, where I was a Tübitak Research Fellow. Before leaving Italy in 2009, I was a teaching fellow in Political Science and Comparative Politics and E-Learning assistant at the University of Naples “L’Orientale”, from which I have also received my MA (with distinctions) and my BA and a political analyst with the Power & Interest News Report.
