I studied at the University of Pisa, where I took my degree in Molecular Biology (BSc) and in Biology applied to Biomedicine (MSc). In the 2014, I started the International PhD programme in Agrobiodiversity of the Scuola Superiore Sant’Anna. During my PhD studies, I was conducting a research project about the putative role that Vitis vinifera microRNAs might play in the cardiovascular system. I joined the PlantLab in the 2018, as a post-doctoral research fellow.

My work is focused on the effect of natural biostimulants on plants, using Arabidopsis thaliana as a model species. To reach my goal, I growth my plants with different controlled system and I valuate the physiological effect through molecular and phenotypical analyses.
