Research interests

Research interests and expertise

“What dri­ves my prac­tice is the dia­logue I like to make hap­pen between two enti­ties in devis­ing a project. On one side, there is my main inter­est, what defines me: indi­vid­u­al­ity within col­lab­o­ra­tion. On the other side, there are con­di­tions in which my inter­est can develop, the con­text of the project. The result of this dia­logue will be then what I will share. I like to think of myself as a strate­gist, cre­at­ing frame­works for indi­vid­u­als to feel free within them.”
