  • BIO

I studied Molecular and Cellular Biology at the University of Pisa, Italy (2012-2017). After my graduation I spent three months at the Sainsbury Laboratory in Cambridge (UK), where I was granted a postgraduate fellowship. In 2017, I joined the PlantLab and entered the PhD programme in Agrobiosciences of the Scuola Superiore Sant’Anna.

My research aims to identify and characterize the bases of the cross-talk between RNA-silencing and oxygen sensing, using Arabidopsis thaliana as a model organism. I am studying the molecular mechanism trough which micro RNAs regulate the adaptive response of plants to hypoxia, both at transcriptional and post-transcriptional level. My research activities rely on molecular biology and transcriptomic analysis.
