Staff – Research Fellow

Andrea is an urban and regional planner by training, currently a Postdoc research fellow and Adjunct Professor at Politecnico di Milano (DAStU). Her research interests relate to the rural and mountain areas’ analysis and development through Cohesion and Rural Development Policies implementation and the ecosystem services mapping and assessment. She held a PhD cum laude in Biosciences and Territory (Doctor Europaeus certification) at the University of Molise and she graduated cum laude in Regional, Urban and Environmental Planning at IUAV, Venice, also earning a I level European Master in Planning and Policies for Cities.

She collaborated with different National and European Institutions in contributing to research (e.g. European Commission’s Joint Research Centre and the Italian Institute for Environmental Protection and Research, ISPRA) and dissemination and communication activities, organizing Conferences’ Special Sessions and participating in ESPON workshops as invited speaker, to illustrate challenges and opportunities for the disadvantaged territories’ development.

Based on her multidisciplinary background, much of her work has been based upon the analysis of quantitative and qualitative socioeconomic and environmental geo-referenced data at local, regional, and national scale to support the decision-making processes in selecting planning priorities.
