I come from a small rural village in the south of Italy. Currenlty, I am a Research Fellow at the Institute for Advanced Study in Toulouse in France. I received my PhD in Environmental and Evolutionary Biology, with a focus on Anthropology, from the University of Rome in 2016.
I then completed a postdoctoral fellowship with Prof. Alexandra Rosati, based first at Harvard University and then at University of Michigan.
