Research Profile

My main field of research is the Crime Terror Nexus one. During my past work experiences I have conducted on field researches in the Neapolitan neighbour of Scampia analysing the role of the local activists in opposing to the camorra. I have also conducted some researches on the radicalisation processes in suburban contexts. I'm currently conducting researches about the impact of privatisation of policing in UK and on the influence exercised by Mafias' money laundering activities in the urban architecture.
