Her primer research focuses on the notion of well-being and needs and its relation with the ecological transition. She focuses on the notion of ‘how much is enough’ in order to establish limits to material consumption for building sustainable well-being policies to address climate change. From now onwards, she will also focus on the “The Dark Side of innovation”, to research deeply the innovations that are being created inside R&D Labs, focusing on the components used through the analysis of patents, with the aim of protecting the environment and the sustainability of human life, closing and important gap between the velocity of the processes of innovation, that extends national borders, and the slower rhythms of national/ regional policy regulations.
