Short autobiography:

I am interested in analysing the social and cultural determinants related to appearance and body dissatisfaction with a particular attention to the role of the media, education and work. For these reasons, I am willing to build and lead a productive network of researchers interested in this topic. In addition, I am concerned to build a network of persons committed to arise awareness about the negative consequences on health and social integration in civil society and among policy makers. Another crucial focus is to create strong partnerships for funding/grant applications.
