I work as a postdoctoral research assistant in cloud computing law at the Centre for Commercial Law Studies of the Queen Mary University of London (Cloud Legal Project and Microsoft Cloud Computing Research Centre). I hold a Ph.D. degree in private law and I am a commercial lawyer.

Currently, I am conducting interdisciplinary researche on the Internet of Things, e-Health and quantified self (fitness apps and wearables), whilst in my leisure time I am writing an essay on the axiological meaning of the privacy anabasis and an article on drones.
I am an anti-mafia activist and a migrants rights and LGBT rights advocate. In my spare time, I like to go hiking and biking; besides I have a passion for theatre and books.
