Research Fellow, University of Padova, FISPPA Department, Section of Sociology

Paolo Giardullo (PhD in Sociologia dei fenomeni culturali e dei processi normativi Univ. degli Studi di Urbino) works at the intersection between STS and environmental sociology. He has been invited as a visiting scholar at Katholieke Universiteit di Leuven (Belgium) within Geography Division of Natural Sciences Faculty. His research considers the construction of environmental data as the outcome of non-institutional processes as citizen science and other bottom-up initiatives (NEWSERA project).

He further investigates public discourses about science and technology on the media through a continuative collaboration within TIPS project adopting machine learning techniques for content analysis. Besides these research interests, he applies mixed methods in connection with the digital methods approach. He teaches Environmental Sociology for BA students in Sociological Sciences at University of Padua.
