about me

I'm an International Development Project Manager with a marketing background and 10 years of professional experience.

I worked in Africa, Middle East and Europe with a number of organisations, including: the Italian Ministry of Foreign Affairs / General Directorate for Development Cooperation; the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), the World Health Organisation (WHO), the Joint United Nations Programme on HIV/AIDS (UNAIDS), the Italian University Institute of Advanced Studies (IUSS), NGOs, Charities, and lately the private sector.

I have experience in implementing projects on the field, as well as in conducting research to analyse and evaluate development policies and programmes. In the corporate sector I have analysed customer trends and market profitability.

Places where I have worked and travelled

Since I was a child I was curious and wanted to travel the world. I was lucky enough to travel extensively when I grew up.

 Places where I have travelled

Nowadays things haven't changed and I enjoy the chance to work with people from many different countries.

 Places where I have worked

Working on projects for LDC provides both the opportunity and challenge of problem solving with people who represent different countries and cultures, speak different languages, and possess differing world views. Such diversity makes me feel more aware of and connected to the world around me, providing a sense of being a part of something larger than myself.
