Palaeontology enthusiast from a young age, I started my university career carrying on this passion about the study of life in the past. My studies regarded the vertebrate palaeontology, with particular attention to marine vertebrates. Now, my research is focused on the palaeobiology of the fossil marine mammals from the Pietra leccese formation (south Italy, upper-lower Miocene), also using digital investigation techniques such as the CT-scan and the finite elements analysis. 
B. Sc. in Natural and Environmental Sciences at the University of Pisa, 2013. Thesis title “Morpho-functional analysis of the skeletal buccal apparatus of extinct and extant cetaceans”.
M. Sc. in Geosciences and Geotechnologies at the University of Pisa, 2016. Thesis title “Comparative study of turbinates of Aegyptocetus tarfa (Mammalia, Cetacea) from medium Eocene of Egypt through CT-scan”.
Palaeontological preparator at the Museo di Storia Naturale dell’Università di Pisa, 2017. Preparation of several fossil vertebrate specimens kept at the Natural History Museum of the University of Pisa.
Ph.D. Student in Earth Sciences at the University of Pisa, 2018 – 2021. Thesis Title: “The marine vertebrates of the Pietra leccese formation in the framework of the geodynamic, oceanographic and climatic evolution of the Mediterranean Sea during the Miocene: an integrated approach”.
