I'm mainly interested in computational social sciences with applications on environmental issues. Besides data (and big data) analysis, I'm especially fascinated in two research approaches: (1) the use of experimental methods in the study of social mechanisms, with a specific reference to social dilemma situations; (2) the application of agent-based modelling to analyse social and social-ecological system. These different approaches can be used in isolation or, better, combined to reach a better understanding of the problem under consideration.

A short list of my research interests covers:
• environmental sustainability
• common-pool resource management
• social-ecological systems
• collective action problems
• computational social sciences


Film: Giangiacomo Bravo about how migration and conflict are linked to the lack of natural resources. The research shows that conflicts were common when we lived as hunter gatherers in South America.
