Dr Federico Cugurullo, a lecturer in the School of Environment, Education and Development (SEED), recently won an award for the Best Italian Early-Stage Academic Working in the UK in the Social Sciences and Humanities.

Federico, who is a lecturer in Human Geography, was presented with his award by the Ambassador of the Italian Embassy in London.

Federico commented: "I have devoted my academic life to the understanding of the ideal city. The road is long, but I take this award as a sign that I am slowly getting closer to what I am looking for, and I want to thank all my colleagues and students for their support and company during what has been a fantastic journey."

The 'Italy Made Me' awards are presented to the best young Italian researchers, who have received part of their training in Italy, in recognition of innovative results obtained in Life Sciences, Physical and Engineering Sciences and Social Sciences & Humanities.

The award process was coordinated by the Science Office of the Italian Embassy with the support of the Embassy's Scientific Council and additional ad hoc experts.
