Diego has a MSc on Environmental Science at Bologna University
He also completed a MSc at the Stockholm Resilience Centre looking at urban regional planning
His current research seeks to understand networked dependencies and how they define network configurations
Drawing from traditions of participatory action research, whole system approaches, cognitive sciences, arts and humanities, Diego is studying transformative practices in relation to climate change and poverty alleviation in case-studies in Sweden, Kenya and Mozambique.
His methodological approach combines participatory research, network analysis, lab experiments and art-based methods.
He holds an MSc on Environmental Science from Bologna University and also did a Master's study at the Stockholm Resilience Centre.
Diego is a part of the cluster Adaptive Governance in Ekoklim program - a transdisciplinary research program at Stockholm University that addresses issues concerning climate effects on biodiversity, ecosystem services and their management and governance in Stockholm region. Diego's empirical research is also built on ongoing engagements with change agents in Kenya and Mozambique through project SPACES.
