Biography

I am associate professor in urban and legal geography at the University of Turin (Interuniversity Department of Regional and Urban Studies and Planning), where I direct OMERO - Interdepartmental Research Centre for Urban Studies. From 2013 to 2020 I worked at the Gran Sasso Science Institute (l'Aquila), where I contributed to create and manage the international PhD programme in Urban Studies.

My research lies at the intersection of urban space and institutions (norms and rules in particular), with a specific focus on issues of illegality, informality, conflict, diversity and pluralism. My articles have appeared in leading international journals in the field of geography, urban planning and urban studies. I have also published the monograph "Shaping Jerusalem. Spatial planning, politics and the conflict' (Routledge, 2017) and co-edited the volume "The Illicit and Illegal in Regional and Urban Governance and Development. Corrupt Places" (Routledge, 2018).

I write regularly for some Italian newspapers, such as Il Manifesto and Huffington Post Italia.

Other activities and projects related to research

My research lies at the intersection of urban space and institutions (norms and rules in particular), with a specific focus on issues of illegality, informality, conflict, diversity and pluralism. Currently, I am mainly working on housing informality in Southern European countries and on different manifestations of illegality in the urban sphere (including corruption in urban planning and criminal infiltration in urban governance and development). I have extensively studied the spatial dimension of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict over Jerusalem.
My articles have appeared in leading international journals in the field of geography, urban planning and urban studies, such as Transaction of the institute of British Geographers, Urban Studies, International Journal of Urban and Regional Research, Political Geography, Housing Studies, Progress in Planning, Planning Theory, Town Planning Review and Urban Geography.
I have also published the monograph Shaping Jerusalem. Spatial planning, politics and the conflict (Routledge, 2017) and co-edited the volume The Illicit and Illegal in Regional and Urban Governance and Development. Corrupt Places (Routledge, 2018).?
