Sono attualmente impegnato in un progetto di ricerca dedicato al coming out sul luogo di lavoro realizzata attraverso interviste sia in Inghilterra sia in Italia.
Dipartimento /Facoltà: Dipartimento di Psicologia
Il coming out sul luogo di lavoro è un’area di ricerca poco esplorata nel contesto italiano. L’oggetto delle mie ricerche in particolare è la costruzione e la negoziazione dell’identità da parte di persone LGBT.
