I completed my Bachelor of Arts degree in Modern Languages at the University of Trento (Italy) and my M.A. in Language Teaching at the University Ca’ Foscari in Venice. For the latter degree I focused my research on how to combine Second Language Acquisition (Italian) and visual art through an experiential approach. I have also worked for the nonprofit organization “Cooperativa Adelante” in the field of informal education (i.e. working with students in activities outside of a formal educational setting). I am now pursuing my M.A. in Germanic Studies to enhance my knowledge and skills in German Studies research and to experience a different educational system here in the U.S.

Areas of Interest: my academic interests include Austrian and South-Tyrolean culture and literature, the coexistence of multiple languages in the same geographical area (in particular in South Tyrol), new and alternative teaching methodologies, experiential learning and different educational systems.
