I joined LSBU in 2016 where I am Senior Lecturer in Criminology in the School of Law and Social Science. I hold a PhD in Political Sociology from the Universite de Paris X Nanterre (France) and a post-doctorate from the EHESS (France).

My main research interests include political violence and criminalisation of dissent, the long terms impacts of criminalisation and judicialisation on history writing and collective memory, and harms deriving from it. I am also interested in penal theory and punishment, and currently doing research on amnesties and collective pardons and the controversial relation between the political and the judicial.

I was part of French-British collaborative project on "Criminalisation of dictatorial pasts" funded by the AHRC Care for the Future (UK) and LabEx Pasts in the Present (France) (2015-2020).

I am a member of the London Critical collective, that organises the London Conference in Critical Thought (LCCT) and member of the editorial board of the London Journal in Critical Thought (LJCT).

I have been involved in the organisation and coordination of the International Women Film Festival in Florence (Italy) since 2010.
