Biography

Stefano joined the MRC/CSO Social and Public Health Sciences Unit in August 2018, participating in the Complexity and Neighbourhoods programmes. Stefano holds a Master's degree in "Communication Sciences", an Italian interdisciplinary course of study that enjoys extraordinarily bad press. He received a PhD in Computational Social Sciences from the Centre for Policy Modelling (Manchester Metropolitan University). In his thesis he built a set of agent-based models based on the Critical Geography line of thought to study the emergence of uneven development among different areas of a city.

Stefano's research interests revolve around modelling (as in agent- based modelling) certain economic and social dynamics of urban areas.

He is particularly interested in exploring the impact of processes of capital valorisation on the urban morphology, the spatial and social configuration of cities, and the formation of health inequalities.
