    In 2004 I was awarded a PhD (“Prosociality, Innovation and Collective Efficacy in Educational and Organizational Context”) by Sapienza University of Rome. My thesis was entitled “Determinants of life satisfaction: a comparative analysis in Italy and Bolivia” and was mainly focused on the study of the impact of psychosocial determinants (specifically values and self-efficacy beliefs) on life satisfaction in a sample of adolescents and young adults from Italy and Bolivia. I was then awarded a 2-year Research Fellowship from Sapienza University of Rome on the project “Perception of legality in juvenile contexts”, and from 2010 I worked at the Italian National Institute for the Educational Evaluation of Instruction and Training.In 2012 I was appointed Senior Research Fellow at the Leonard Cheshire Disability, joining the Leonard Cheshire Disability and Inclusive Development Centre at University College London. In this role I have collaborated on a variety of different projects on the themes of inclusive education, livelihoods, and human rights. I joined Coventry University in August 2014, working at the Research Centre for Psychology, Behaviour, and Achievement; then at the Centre for Advances in Behavioural Sciences; and currently at the Centre for Global Learning: Education and Attainment.


    Vision Statement

    My main research interest is related to the study of social-cognitive dimensions, such as self-efficacy beliefs and moral disengagement, in relation to unethical and transgressive conduct in different context (e.g. violent behaviour, transgressive conduct, academic cheating behaviours, unethical behaviours at work etc). During my career, I have also developed methodological expertise, particularly in relation to the development and validation of psychometric measure and latent variable analyses.
