From 2007 to 2010, I worked in University to get a PhD, with a research about the role of audiovisual in the fruition of cultural heritages.

In the meantime, I co-­operated to the didactic activity related the designergonomics lab, video­graphic and sociology.

In 2008 I assisted Antida Gazzola in Piacenza for her course of urban sociology for architecture, for foreign students in English, not only with lessons, but also with research “on the way”, to give the sociological approach in the masterplan.

I took part to the research activities related conventions between university, public institutions and companies (like Lavazza, Pininfarina Extra, and others).

To complete my PhD research, in 2009 I spent a period of two months in Australia to improve my thesis, under the Practicum Exchange Program at the UNSW in Sydney, under the supervision of Petra Gemeinboeck.
