After a degree in History (University of Siena, Italy) and a MA in Communication and Information Sciences (Tilburg University, The Netherlands), I have been practicing my craft working in data journalism DATA JOURNALISM
I have been lead data journalism at the (now acquired and ceased) startup Silk between 2014 - 2016 and am now freelancing. I am comfortable working on all the phases of crafting a data story by myself, from data collection to dataviz, although I ♥ much more to work in a team.
I am available for freelance gigs in this field.
and data literacy trainings DATA LITERACY
I work as a trainer in data skills such as: data scraping, data verification, data cleaning, data analysis for storytellers, data visualization, where to find data, introduction to data. I teach University classes, in-person workshops and online MOOCs.

Recent clients include Bologna Business School at the University of Bologna - where I've thought the Data Storytelling module in 2018 and 2019 - and Dataninja School - where I have a part-time position as tutor and (MOOC) course creator.
since 2014: first as a freelancer, then as lead data journalist at the Amsterdam-based startup Silk until 2016, then again as a freelancer.

I am now a freelancer offering consultancy and teaching in the field of data communication, visualization and processing.
From 2018 I am project leader at Batjo, a Google DNI-funded project promoting the use of data physicalization DATA PHYSICALIZATION

In 2018, we have designed and developed 3 data physicalizations and have launched a cookbook for all those wishing to learn to replicate them. We offer consultancy and services related to data physicalization and digital fabrication.
