About me

I’m postdoctoral researcher at the University of Milan Bicocca, Department of Human Sciences for Education, where I am working on a 2 years (2016-2017) research project titled “Narrative and Complexity: an Interdisciplinary Dialogue” and coordinating the Interdisciplinary Seminar on Narrative.

I’m also a Senior Researcher at Sogang University in the School of Integrated Knowledge (Seoul, South Korea), where I’m collaborating with prof. Wayne de Fremery on a project involving the use of Virtual Reality for promoting literature.

I received an international PhD in Italian Literature (University of Florence, University of Cambridge), with a dissertation on aspects of myth in the work of the Holocaust survivor-writer and scientist Primo Levi.

My main contributions to narrative theory are: “Looking at Narrative as a Complex System: the Proteus Principle,” Narrating Complexity (forthcoming); with F. Passalacqua, “Epistemological Problems in Narrative Theory,” Narrative Sequence in Contemporary Narratology (Ohio State UP, 2016).

I’m also Managing Editor of Enthymema, an international academic journal of theory, critics and philosophy of literature.
