Ludovica earned her master degree in architecture at the Politecnico di Milano, Italy, in 2013 with a thesis on digital technologies enhancing the liveability of public realms in historic centres. She worked as a project assistant at the Aedes Network Campus Berlin (ANCB), Germany from 2013-14. In 2014, she was a teaching assistant at the German University of Technology in Oman (GUtech).

Ludovica’s research focuses on the use of social-media and the production of art in urban spaces in Singapore.

Her main contribution is the definition of Hybrid Art Spaces and the individuation of new methods based on Big data analytics to map, describe and evaluate them.
