Welcome! This website is dedicated to:
a) Students and prospective PPL students at OleMiss. In the 'Teaching' and 'Biography' sections you can find information on my teaching philosophy, style, and personal interests.
b) Colleagues, graduate students, and informed readers. Everyone interested in, broadly speaking, the 'economy' and 'Europe' may find this website interesting.
My regional expertise concerns Eastern Europe and
Eurasia. My research areas are human geography, and economic/political geography.
I completed my PhD in the Department of Geography at UNC-Chapel Hill
. I have another PhD from the University of
Trieste. I was born and raised in Monfalcone on the North Eastern border of Italy. The desire of crossing borders to critically analyze political change and economic transformation has led me to a career in human geography and public policy.
