Her research interests focus on the impact of globalization on education: more specifically, she is interested in understanding the relationship between international education and political changes on the global level, in the internationalization of the curriculum in higher education through the lens of critical pedagogy, and, more largely, on the international student experience. As a dual Italian American citizen, Alessia’s deep understanding of the international student experience translated into a strong personal and academic passion for improving it, as demonstrated by her various leadership roles, such as that of Assistant Teacher in the New International Student Seminar at NYU.

Alessia also contributed to the translation from English to Italian of the two UNESCO pedagogical guides on the prevention of violent extremism through education, in collaboration with the UNESCO Regional Bureau for Science and Culture in Europe (Venice, Italy) and the Centre for International Cooperation (Trento, Italy): A Teacher’s Guide on the Prevention of Violent Extremism (UNESCO, 2016) and Preventing violent extremism through education: a guide for policy-makers (UNESCO, 2017).
