Chiara Certomà is an Adjunct professor in Cultural Geography at the Sciences for Peace Interdisciplinary Center, University of Pisa and a Research Fellow at the Dirpolis Institute – CDG Lab, and the Institute of Management – SUM Lab. She is currently working on  governance and planning  for sustainable cities and communities.

She holds a degree in Philosophy of Science from the University of Rome “La Sapienza” (2003); a Master in Environmental Communication from the University of Pisa – Human and Environmental Sciences Department (2004); and a PhD in Political Science from the Scuola Sant’Anna (2009). She has been visiting researcher at The Open University – Geography Department, UK (2007); the Universitè Paris “La Sorbonne” – SciencePo, France (2011);  the Rachel Carson Center for Environment and Society, LMU, Germany (2012); and the Department of Architecture and Urban Planning, Ghent University, Belgium (2013).

Chiara’s research  lies at the junction of the two macro areas  of Science, Society & Technology studies and Space, Society & the Environment. She is interested in innovative modes of geographical production, planning and governance performed by heterogeneous, multilayered and multiscalar networks. Key questions refer to how these networks assemble and negotiate socio-environmental issues, and how the material and semiotic implications of their agency is brought to the public fore.
