I work as a policy officer of the European Commission since 2008.
I am currently responsible for the “future of work” portfolio within the Directorate-General for Communication Networks, Content and Technology (DG CONNECT). I provide analysis, assessment and policy options to address the impact of digitisation on EU labour markets.
Between 2014 and 2018 I was the Counsellor for the Digital Economy at the Delegation of the European Union to the USA, in Washington DC. I was the liaison between the EU and the US on policy, regulation and research activities related to the Internet and Information & Communication Technologies, including the EU Digital Single Market strategy.
Previously, I worked on cyber-security, privacy / personal data protection, cloud computing and Internet governance.
Before joining the European Commission, I worked at the NEXA Research Center for Internet and Society of the Politechnic University of Turin, at the Media Innovation Unit of the Chamber of Commerce of Florence, at the Centro Tempo Reale Research Centre for Contemporary Music and in the private sector as a software developer and IT project manager for a number of multinational firms.
