My main motivation in personal and professional life has been always the celebration of diversity. Bridging differences while preserving diversity is a key ingredient of social cohesion, conviviality, democracy, and ecological sustainability.

With this in mind, I have navigated and created links between multiple research fields (computer networking, game theory, urban studies, design research, social psychology, Internet governance) based in different academic institutions (ICS-FORTH, AUEB, UPMC, currently Sorbonne Université, ETH Zurich) and actively engaged in various civil society initiatives (NetHood Zurich, ISOC-CH, Verein L200, INURA, Neustart Schweiz).

Starting from January 2021 I am an Ecosystem facilitator at ETH Zurich's Chair of Architecture and Urban Transformation / NEWROPE, responsible for the Opening up ONA project, among others.
