Giulia is a Master’s student of the Erasmus Mundus Joint Master Degree in Education Policies for Global Development (GLOBED), from the Universitat Autonòma de Barcelona, the University of Amsterdam, the University of Oslo and the University of Malta. She holds a B.A. Degree in Politics, International Relations and Economics (2016) from the University of Durham (U.K). Her Bachelor’s final research project qualitatively examined the effects of residential segregation on Roma access to education in the city of Rome, Italy. In the past, Giulia was an intern at the Northern Ireland Centre for Economic Policy at Ulster University (UK), where she worked on the 2013 Knowledge Economy Index and on the Northern Ireland Economy databank. She also worked as an intern for a management consulting firm in Milan. Since June 2018, she has been part of the REFORMED team as an intern and has focused on the data-collection for the SAWA Atlas, researching National Large-Scale Assessments and their use in middle- and low-income countries.
Her Master’s research thesis focuses on the enactment of specific Autonomy with Accountability reforms in Rome (Italy). Giulia hopes to expand her current research into a PhD project, adding Italy as a new REFORMED country case.
