I am committed to developing leadership skills in my research field and my appointments to date confirm my increasing influence. My considerable publication record indicates my standing in the field as well as my capacity to produce high-quality research to a deadline. I have published 8 monographs, 6 edited books (Palgrave, Routledge, Lexington Books and Amsterdam University Press), edited 8 special issues, and more than 70 articles and chapters. I have published in English, Italian, Spanish, Russian, and Portuguese.
