I have been part of GEM since 2009 collaborating on the open data licensing of GEM products and managing contracts. Currently I am also responsible for the management and administration of GEM projects and grant agreements, and coordinate GEM licensing policies collaborating with the Scientific/Technical Office. I have an MA in Communication and Media, and obtained my Master's Degree at IULM Milan University. I then moved abroad and worked three years in the UK working for a large non-profit organisation, before returning to Pavia and joining GEM. Recently I have completed a series of courses on Media Management and Risk Communication, the World Bank Understanding Risk, and Safe & Resilient Cities.
