Hi! I am Stefano Malatesta, researcher in geography at the "Riccardo Massa" Department of Human Sciences for Education of the University of Milan-Bicocca. I teach Human Geography of island systems and coastal and maritime tourism at the international degree course in Marine Sciences (University of Milano-Bicocca).
I coordinate the Working Group on "Smaller Islands and Archipelagic States" within the Association of Italian Geographers (AGeI).
I am trustee of the Italian Geographic Society for the Lombardy region. I am also a member of the executive board of the International Small Islands Studies Association (ISISA). My study interests focus on the geography of islands, sustainability education, children's geography and the social response to environmental change.
