In geographic terms, I specialized on the Asia-Pacific region, which was the regional focus I choose during my Master's degree. However, I also have a relevant competence of other areas; namely Europe (including EU affairs), the Middle East and South Asia. In regard to single states, I am primarily expert on the US, China, Japan, Russia, India, Greece, Italy and Turkey; but also North and South Korea, Taiwan, the main European countries and others.
For what concerns my linguistic skills, my mother tongue is Italian. I am proficient in English and French, and I understand Spanish as well (although I rarely use it to speack or write). I have a certain knowledge of Greek (sadly, my level is not as good as I would like) and I have a good base in Japanese; and I am gradually working to improve both. I am willing to learn more languages in the future, if I will have the opportunity and most importantly the time.
I have been collaborating with Wikistrat
for more than one year as a member of its analytic community with the rank of Researcher (previously Intern); and I participated to different activities on many politically-relevant issues in that context, such as simulations, discussions and others.

Apart from my university and professional experience, I enjoy reading, playing videogames, watching movies, travelling, photography and doing physical exercise.
In regard to books, apart from hisory and IR-related essays, I particularly like sci-fi, fantasy and techno-thriller novels. These are also my favourite genres in cinema; although my preferences on films are wider. As far as gaming is concerned, I appreciate strategy, shooters, RPGs and flying simulators. I really like travelling, notably to foreign countries; and I have been to various places in Europe (mainly in Italy, Greece and Belgium) as well as the US and others. Finally, I practice photography as a hobby, especially when I travel. I will likely use some of my own pictures here on Strategikos and I may even decide to create a dedicated platform for my photos in the future.
