I graduated in Environmental Biology at "La Sapienza” University of Rome (Italy), where I focused on the study of phylogeographic patterns of Italian herpetofauna.

Herpetologist at heart, I primarily aim to characterise the venoms of typically overlooked Western Mediterranean viper species (e.g. Vipera latastei, Vipera seoanei), and assess factors determining its variation within an ecological and evolutionary framework.

I am deeply interested in studying different aspects of reptile biology, especially involving venomous snakes, and enthusiastically support outreach initiatives and multidisciplinary collaborations.
