PhD candidate in Urban and Regional Development at Interuniversity Department of Regional and Urban Studies and Planning (DIST) at Politecnico di Torino (Italy). Research fellow in 2018 on the research project VALIUM (Valuation Integrated for Urban Management), financed by DIST. Master's Degree in Architecture Construction City at Politecnico di Torino and Alta Scuola Politecnica (2017). Their scientific interests span Regional and Urban Economics, Sustainable Development, Planning Evaluation, Scenario building and Mathematical Models in Urban Sciences. The research activities focus on the adoption of integrated evaluation approaches for supporting policies definition and transformation operations in urban contexts, by using multicriteria analysis and agent-based modeling, among the others. The use of spatially explicit data is an integral part of the research works. Other scientific productions regard the topic of ecosystem services and their assessment in a multi-dimensional perspective. During the PhD, a visiting period was spent at the Queensland University of Technology (QUT) of Brisbane (Australia) at the Urban Design Lab of the Urban Informatics group. She is also involved in some research projects, such as the project QUICHE (Quali misurazioni per quali politiche: verso il Sustainable Development Goal 11) coordinated by Prof. Lami, the agreement between Politecnico di Torino and the municipality of Gattico-Veruno (Novara) for the New Municipal Plan (coordinated by Prof. Bottero and Mondini), and the one for the revision of the municipal plan of Torino (coordinated by Prof. Bottero and Mondini), and on the elaboration of the PEC for the biopark and SEA for the ZOOM park of Torino (coordinated by Prof. Bottero and Mondini). She participated in the organization of different Sessions at the EURO (European Conference on Operational Research), ICSSA (International Conference on Computational Science and Its Applications) and NMP (New Metropolitan Perspectives) conferences, as well as in interdepartmental seminars (e.g. Building Sustainable and Resilient Cities in 2019). She was also the tutor of some courses on real estate, project appraisal and decision-making at Politecnico di Torino, Politecnico di Milano and Alta Scuola Politecnica.
