My research is focused on Design Methods and managing strategic design projects with small and medium industries including Design Thinking processes. My interest is in design processes, methods and tools and their application within different sectors for strategic innovation.
I am part of the Polimi DESIS Lab and of the international DESIS Network (Design for Social Innovation and Sustainability).
I have had different working experiences from the Director of IED Research Centre (from 2009 to 2011) to Co-editor of Ottagono international magazine in Design and Architecture (from 2012 to 2014) and co-founder of the consulting firm 6ZERO5 in 2016.
