Introduction
Ph.D. in Architecture, obtained Cum Laude on September 25, 2018. I look forward to a career that allows me to develop my interests in the new ways of working and their impacts on the built environment. I am keen on exploring new strategies and innovative technologies to drive workers, organizations, and cities toward a more sustainable future.

Article
This study undertakes a systematic literature review (SLR) on how the workspace influences female workers and, more generally, gender equality. Within the broader context of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DE&I) matters, gender issues have attracted ample attention from scholars and policymakers. However, research on the specific topic of this SLR...

Chapter
Full-text available
The gig economy and novel technologies are bringing about new ways of working, living and socialising that are changing common habits in the design, management, and use of space. The built environment is required to be increasingly flexible, which determines a phenomenon of ‘hybridisation’ meaning the co-presence and co-existence of multiple functi...
Article
Purpose In large organizations, space planning relies on workgroup leaders to indicate spatial adjacency preferences. However, many factors affect workgroups’ adjacency preferences, and it is not clear how the choices are made. This paper aims to explore whether the adjacency preferences are influenced by the collaboration relationship or constrain...

Space utilization data can reveal patterns in space usage, and employees' and customers' presence and occupants' mobility within the building. Nowadays, emerging technology, such as smart sensors and devices, can revolutionize the field which was originally dominated by the judgment of a human observer registered with paper and pencil. However, the...

Purpose Workplace space utilization data reveals patterns of space usage, the occupants’ presence and mobility within the office building. Nowadays, emerging technology such as smart sensors and devices can revolutionize the measurement of space utilization data, which is originally dominated by human observers with paper and pencil. However, these...
Article
Purpose Due to the young age of proptech, little is known about the dynamics of its expansion. In particular, there is limited agreement about a definition of “proptech,” while different categorizations are popping up. A severe lack of information emerges for the proptech scenario in Italy. The goal of this paper is to systematize multiple proptech...

Project
The aim of the COST Action is threefold. First, it aims to share the first outcomes of some funded international research projects on the phenomenon of new workplaces, such as Coworking Spaces and Maker Spaces, in order to: (i) identify the typologies (Taxonomy) of such emerging workplaces, and (ii) reveal their spatial distribution, and to explain their location patterns. Secondly, through the comparison and dissemination of the first results of these international research activities, the Action aims at identifying, measuring and evaluating the (direct and indirect) effects of these new working spaces (Atlas) in order to understand whether and how they have promoted – with or without the help of public subsidies and planning measures : (a) regional competitiveness, economic performance and resilience; (b) entrepreneurial milieu; (c) knowledge creation within regional innovation system, retaining knowledge workers and the creative class; (d) social inclusion and spatial regeneration of peripheral areas. The third aim is to collect, discuss and develop guidelines for tailored policy and planning measures (Tool Box) to foster the positive effects of new workplaces through the promotion of agreements and cooperation with local, regional and/or national public administrations/stakeholders, as well as to try to mitigate their negative effects on the neighbourhoods (i.e. parking shortages, noise, or increasing land rent).
Project
i) sharing the scientific outcomes on new working spaces (definitions, typologies and geographical distributions); ii) comparing the best practices and direct and indirect impacts with a particular focus on the periphery; iii) sharing the policy tools across the countries.

Project
A project to develop together a comprehensive online course on workplace management and to explore the current state of workplace management phenomena in different European countries with the help of an organizational survey. The survey results assist to refine the new course as well as indicate best practices and development potentials. This project is about the survey report!
