Attualmente lavoro per il Dipartimento di Statistica della FAO e ho avuto recenti collaborazioni con CTA e la World Bank su politiche di condivisione dei dati in agricoltura.
Sono stata a lungo project manager presso il Segretariato del Global Forum on Agricultural Research and Innovation (GFAR) e ho collaborato con il Segretariato della Global Open Data for Agriculture and Nutrition initiative (GODAN). Ho rappresentato FAO e GFAR in progetti su infrastrutture dati finanziati dalla Commissione Europea (agINFRABig Data Europe) e ho gestito le piattaforme open data CIARD RINGAgriProfiles e Agrisemantics Map in coordinazione con partner globali e regionali.

Recentemente, ho dedicato buona parte del mio lavoro all'organizzazione e facilitazione di workshop e webinar sul tema dei diritti dei contadini sui dati.

The ethical, legal and policy aspects related to farmers’ accessing and using available data, as well as sharing their own data, are now seen as key to empowering farmers through regulations, agreements and an enabling legal and policy environment.   This is why GFAR, GODAN, CTA and KTBL started a consultation process on ethical, legal and policy aspects of open data affecting farmers.
