Anna is Associate Researcher at the Department of Sociology, where she contributes to postgraduate teaching of qualitative research methods and to postgraduate supervision. After research posts at the National Research Council in Rome and at the LSE, she carried out her PhD at the Centre for Family Research of the University of Cambridge. She has since held postdoctoral positions at the European Parliament in Brussels, the University of Leeds, and the University of Cambridge.
Anna’s research covers the areas of youth studies, identities, migration, and gender. Methodological innovation and crossover between the social sciences and the arts form a substantial part of her work. She is interested in the application of visual, arts-based, and other creative methods and in their potential for widening research participation. Her current work looks at the identity processes of migrants, with a focus on the internal migrations of Europeans, particularly young Italians.
