I am a public policy analyst with more than 15 years of international experience as a practitioner and researcher in the fields of e-government and open government.
My main interests are government transparency & accountability, open government data ecosystems, governance networks, and information management.

I recently got a Ph.D. in Public Administration and Policy from the State University of New York at Albany. My dissertation was on EU policy transparency and the creation of Open Government Data ecosystems for public participation. While in Albany, I had an assistantship at the Center for Technology in Government. I also hold an MSc in Innovation Management from Sant’Anna School, Pisa, Italy.

Currently, I work as an ICT policy analyst and open data specialist at the Italian Agency for Territorial Cohesion in Rome. I have been a member of the technical-scientific committee of OpenCoesione since its creation.
I also lead Monithon, a civil society initiative allowing anyone to verify how EU money is spent.

I have authored international academic papers and research reports on digital government services diffusion and quality, ICT governance at the local level, open government strategies, European policy.
