D.Phil in Oriental (Middle Eastern and Islamic) Studies
I have been a Visiting Fellow at Harvard University. Before obtaining my Master Degree in Middle Eastern Studies at Ca' Foscari University, Italy, I have been a visiting student at the University of Tehran, Iran and at the School of Oriental and African Studies, United Kingdom. I hold a Bachelor Degree in Architecture from IUAV, Italy.
My research is set at the intersection between contemporary Islamic intellectual history and sociology of knowledge, tackling questions of authority, mediation, and politics of knowledge production in a global perspective. In my dissertation, I explore the role of transnational social networks in the process of intellectual legitimation of Muslim thinkers in contemporary Europe.
