My name is Giulia Ranzini.

I am a social media researcher and a communication scholar.

I am Assistant Professor at the Department for Communication Science at the Vrije Universiteit of Amsterdam. I coordinate the PR and Reputation Management course (BA, 2nd year), and teach several other courses in the Corporate Communication and Media Psychology tracks.

My research field is located between media sociology and psychology. My background is in economics and management. I am interested in the influence technologies have on individuals, on their relationships and on society at large.

Most of my academic papers and essays that can be found in the Publications section. For more personal ramblings please refer to Caprette, my increasingly bilingual blog where I write about other things that are close to my heart.  If you'd like to talk to me about your project and maybe receive some advice you can check out a section called the C word.

My more structured, third-person biography is available here.
