Biography

Political ecologist at the Centre for Social Studies at the University of Coimbra, Portugal, granted with the FCT Post-Doc Fellowship for a 3-years project on the Commons. In the last years, I have been working: at Department of Environmental Policy of the Institute of Environmental Studies at the Universities of Amsterdam (VU) in the Netherlands as Visiting Research; at the Department of Political Science of the University of Bari in Italy as Visiting Professor, and at the Croatian Institute of Political Ecology as Senior Researcher Fellow. I was trained in Italy (Ph.D., 2010) in Economics and Technology for Sustainable Development, I crafted my interdisciplinary talents while building my international profile during my visit stay (1,5 years) at the Institute of Environmental Science and Technology (UAB), Spain, and 2 short stays in top-tier Universities in Portugal (New University of Lisbon) and United Kingdom (University of Sussex). I am at the core of the Degrowth scholarship; at ICTA-UAB together with other scientists, I launched an internationally acclaimed research program on degrowth and environmental justice. My edited book on the topic is considered a landmark publication (Routledge 2014, 10 translations, 532 cit. in Google Scholar, 21/09/2019). I employ political theory alongside quantitative models of societal and ecological metabolism to critically understand the socio-ecological predicaments of economic growth. I also use innovative frameworks to investigate alternatives for change. I have a first-rate publication record and impact, I have published more than 50 scientific items, 15 peer-reviewed papers (9 in Q1), a commentary in the prestigious journal Nature, and 10 book chapters (Routledge, Palgrave, Rowman & Littlefield). My total IF is 68.38 (JCR). In Scopus my H index is 10, my 17 documents are cited 321 times; Researchgate, 32 research items 478 cit. and 17,813 reads; Google Scholar 1397 cit., H index is 14 and i10 index is 21. I co-supervised 2 Ph.D. (1 ongoing) and supervised 6 MSc theses. I presented tens of papers in international conferences, delivered talks as an invited speaker (3 times as Keynote Speaker) and lectures in many European countries and Brazil. I have been Co-PI - Deputy Director of a large-scale FP7 EU-funded project (ENTITLE, €3,65 M; partners in Europe, Middle-East and Latin America); I have participated in 3 more EU projects (Horizon 2020; FP7, LIFE+).
