I am a Ph.D. student in synthetic biology at the University of Edinburgh. I am working in the Giovanni Stracquadanio lab, my research is focused on computer aided design (CAD) for synthetic biology.

I have a summa cum laude M.Sc. in Biology, I graduated from Naples University in 2014. During my thesis, I worked for one year at the Institute of Food Sciences, Italian National Research Council, in Angelo Facchiano’s lab. My thesis focused on the creation of a database about nutraceutical food and compounds and on finding natural inhibitors for the protein AKT1.
