I graduated in Foreign Languages and Literatures at the University of Bologna in 1993 and obtained a PhD (Ph. D) in "Scottish Literature" at the University of Glasgow, Scotland, in 1997. After my doctorate I had temporary teaching positions at the Faculty of Languages of the University of Bologna. From 1999 to 2001 I carried out a post-doctorate and from 2002 to 2005 I received a research fellowship, in both cases at the Department of Foreign Languages and Literature of the University of Bologna. From 2005 until my appointment as a lecturer in 2007, I worked as an adjunct professor at the Faculty of Letters and Philosophy of the University of Parma. From 1 March 2015 I have been Associate Professor of English Literature at the University of Parma, where I teach English literature and Anglophone literatures courses for both BA and MA degrees. My research focuses mainly on the following areas: 1) Scottish literature (Romantic theatre: women’s drama and theatre; drama / theatre and national identity; migration and exile literature between the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries; romantic and contemporary Gothic fiction; Victorian poetry; contemporary Scottish theatre, with a particular focus on women’s dramaturgy: 2) Romantic-period poetry and theatre (Byron; women’s poetry and theatre/drama; Orientalist theatre; forms and genres of “illegitimate” theatre; 3) Literature of migration and transculturality. The main volumes resulting from this research are: the monographs Eccentric Scotland: Three Victorian Poets. James Thomson ("BV"), John Davidson and James Young Geddes (CLUEB 2004), Lord Byron and Discourses of Otherness: Scotland, Italy, and Femininity (humming earth, Zeticula Publisher, 2012) and Nation, Community, Self: Female Voices in the Scottish Theatre from the Late Sixties to the Present (Mimesis International, 2018); and the edited books Emancipation, Liberation, and Freedom: Romantic Drama and Theater in Britain, 1760-1830 (MUP 2010), with Valentina Poggi, an Italian edition of two plays by the Scottish playwright Joan Ure (Panozzo 2010) and, with Lilla Maria Crisafulli, East / West Encounters in Literature and Culture (2019), a special issue (vol 10, n. 1-2 2018) of the top-rated journal La Questione romantica. Currently I am working on two projects: a monographic study on Scottish migration literature (Thomas Pringle, John Leyden and Mungo Park); with Maria Elena Capitani, a book on David Greig’s theatre (for De Gruyter); and a critical edition (for Ledizioni, Milano) of the play Commedia by the contemporary playwright Marcella Evaristi.

From 2015 to 2019 I was a member of the Board of the Italian Association of English Studies and Vice-president of the same om 2017 to 2019. In the same years I was a member of the Editorial Board of Textus, the journal of the Italian Association of English Studies.
