I am a Senior Lecturer at the Yunus Centre for Social Business and Health, and a program leader for an MSc in Social Innovation at Glasgow Caledonian University. I have studied political science and sociology at the University of Florence. I hold a Master Degree in Applied Social Research from the University of Manchester and a PhD in human geography from Durham University. My interest in social innovation and the social economy is threefold: understanding the contextual determinants of social enterprise development and performance; understanding the dynamics of local (and regional) economies; and the involvement of voluntary and community organisations in delivery of public services.
