Lack of systemic wisdom is always punished. […]. But the systems are nonetheless punishing 
of any species unwise enough to quarrel with its ecology (Gregory Bateson, 1972)

Associate Professor in Economic Sociology, he teaches Sociology of Organization, Comparative Welfare Systems and Ecology of Socio-Economic Systems. Research topics concern the ecological sustainability of welfare systems, the comparative analysis of social and labor policies and socio-economic exclusion processes, as well as organizational and participation studies. Research approaches integrate pragmatism and cybernetics, in particular through systemic action-research methods, which are implemented also for teaching, as well as training and consulting with groups, nonprofit and public organizations.
