I come from Naples, a wonderful city in the south of Italy. I graduated in Biology at the University of Naples "Federico II" in 2011. After graduation, I worked at the Telethon Institute of Genetics and Medicine (TIGEM) in the laboratory of Prof. Enrico Maria Surace. During this period I developed gene therapy strategies for the treatment of retinal degenerations, such as autosomal dominant retinitis pigmentosa.
I enjoy traveling, soccer swimming, and spending time with friends and family.
