Andrea is a linguist specialized in intercultural pragmatics who studies the role of intercultural competence in the internationalization of higher education.

My motivation has been to travel, learn about other cultures and interact with their people. During these last years I have been a volunteer in various projects, traveling to Egypt, Morocco and Ghana, where I learned about the influence of culture on our values, our way of behaving, relating and perceiving the world, a subject that I am passionate about.
