Academic profile

I have a master degree in Communication Science that has provided a theoretical and methodological background in Cultural Anthropology and Cultural Studies.  Currently I am enrolled to the Education and Society Doctoral School. I consider my interest and approach as an interdisciplinary one and I am really committed to action research in educational ethnography. I have contributed as a student to researches on Roma issues related to education or community study and implemented individual research projects on the Collegium Martineum as an educational model, on the identity strategies of Roma young adults and on school narratives and identity strategies of Roma students in a suburban area of Pécs, Hungary. Recently I have made a fieldwork in a Roma camp of Scampia, a periphery quarter of Naples, Italy.
