Personal profile


My doctoral studies focus on the ecological transition and historical systemic changes. I am interested specifically in the phenomenon of mine closures as a case study to understand how the needs from local populations can inform the industrial changes and Just Transition. My master research, which investigated the impacts of de-industrialization in an American coalfield received the Nathaniel Lichfield Award from the Regional Studies Association and the Conference Presentation Award from the EPOG Consortium.


Outreach is an important part of my participation in academic activities.  Since 2013, through local and international involvements like Rethinking Economics and the World Social Forum, I advocated to rethink and democratize economics. As an academic, I am interested in voices and perspectives that are often silenced by mainstream economics analysis. There is an important value to research that goes beyond the university walls and I wish that more initiatives would address the divide between academics and citizens. This is especially important today as the divide itself limits our capacity to solve socioeconomics and environmental crisis. This year, I am a member of the curriculum team of Economy Studies, and a Student Representative on the Board of the European Society for Ecological Economics (ESEE). In the last years, I also participated in radio programs and diffused knowledge through articles and policy briefs.
