Biography

I graduated in Biological Science (Bachelor Degree) in 2009, and then in Molecular Biology and Genetics (Master Degree) in 2011, both at the University of Pavia, Italy.

In November 2011 I gained a 3-years national fellowship at the University of Pavia and I started working as PhD student under the supervision of Professor Antonio Torroni.

In May 2014 I was awarded an EMBO Short Term Fellowship (90 days) to visit the Institute of Legal Medicine, Innsbruck Medical University, where I spent 7 months in the Forensic Molecular Biology lab directed by Professor Walther Parson.

In 2014 I was also nominated by the Fondazione Cariplo and subsequently selected by the Scientific Review Panel of the Council for the Lindau Nobel Laureate Meetings to participate in the 64th Meeting of Nobel Laureates (29 June–4 July 2014) in Lindau, Germany – dedicated to Physiology and Medicine.

In December 2014, I received my PhD in “Genetics, Molecular and Cellular Biology” (University of Pavia), dissertation title “Mitogenome variation: a female perspective in human evolution”.

In March 2015, I left the University of Pavia and I was appointed by the University of Huddersfield as a Research Fellow in Archaeogenetics.
