Roberta Raffaetà



Associate Professor


My research stays at the intersection of medical anthropology, environmental anthropology and science & technology studies. I study how to care for each other in an entangled and more-than-human planet. In last years, I have explored how biocomputational scientists produce knowledge about microbes and why this matters. I have received a PhD in Social Sciences at the University of Lausanne in 2008. I have been granted a Marie Curie (Trento University and Monash, 2010-2013) and a Fulbright (UCLA, 2018) fellowship and worked in several universities in Italy (Milano-Bicocca, Bolzano, Bologna, Trento, Verona) and abroad (Monash Melbourne, Lausanne).
