Veronica Lenzi

I earned both my bachelor and master’s degrees from the University of Bologna, majoring in International Relations. I graduated with the best academic curriculum in political science-related disciplines of class of 2009.
During my last year as an undergraduate I studied at the University of California, Los Angeles, where I wrote my MA dissertation on the energy relations between China and the United States and their influence on the reform of the international institutions.
I then developed my interest for energy policy issues through a one-year diploma at the John’s Hopkins School of Advanced International Studies (SAIS) where I concentrated in International Economics and Energy, Resources and Environment.
I have been part of the IMT Ph.D. program in Political Systems and Institutional Change since March 2010.
