My main motivation in personal and professional life has been always the celebration of diversity. Bridging differences while preserving diversity is a key ingredient of social cohesion, conviviality, democracy, and ecological sustainability.

With this in mind, I have navigated and created links between multiple research fields (computer networking, game theory, urban studies, design research, social psychology, Internet governance) based in different academic institutions (ICS-FORTH, AUEB, UPMC, currently Sorbonne Université, ETH Zurich) and actively engaged in various civil society initiatives (NetHood Zurich, ISOC-CH, Verein L200, INURA, Neustart Schweiz).


Starting from January 2021 I am an Ecosystem facilitator at ETH Zurich's Chair of Architecture and Urban Transformation / NEWROPE, responsible for the Opening up ONA project, and hybrid space design, among others.

Currently, February 2023, I am working intensely on guiding the transition process of the L200 space in Zurich.

Two on-going projects through NetHood, C4R and EuComMeet, shape my engagement in collective work on digital platforms in line with the vision of a more Organic Internet.
