I am Lecturer in Modern History at City, University of London.
I hold a PhD in Politics and International Relations from the University of Cambridge, M.St in Global and Imperial History from the University of Oxford, UK, and BA (summa cum laude) in Modern History from the University of Bologna, Italy. Most recently, I was Junior Research Fellow at Queens’ College, Cambridge, and Teaching Associate at the Centre for Gender Studies, University of Cambridge. Previously, I held visiting studentships and fellowships at the University of California, Los Angeles, the University of Chicago, Sciences Po, Paris and LUISS, Rome.
My research is set in the intersection of History and International Relations. My published work examines the history of international thought in the twentieth century, especially around the the history of world orders.
My book, The emergence of globalism: Visions of World Order in Britain and the United States, 1939-1950, is out with Princeton University Press in April 2017. The book is based on my doctoral research, that was awarded the Lisa Smirl prize for best dissertation (Department of Politics, Cambridge University) and co-awarded the Raymond Aron Prize 2014.

I’ve published on geopolitics, cosmopolitanism, federalism and democracy theory in Britain and the United States. I am also interested in the relationship between intellectual history and international theory. Recently, I’ve been writing on Italian international and geopolitical thought in the the twentieth century.
