My studies span from Italy, where I graduated with a BA at the University of Bergamo, to Germany, where I completed an MA in Contemporary East Asian Studies focusing on Japanese Society and Politics at the University of Duisburg-Essen. While working on my MA thesis on civic engagement in shrinking cities in Japan, I first entered into contact with LTC. Being interested in demographic changes, the topic caught me, and I decided to focus on it for my future PhD project. After working as a research assistant at the Ruhr-University of Bochum on the project “TechCo – Digital Technologies in the COVID-19-Pandemic: A Transnational Dialogue between Germany and Japan”; in 2022, I began my PhD at the University of Duisburg-Essen within the frame of the CRC 1342 project “Global Dynamics of Social Policy”. My research topic is the generosity of LTC systems.
