Born in Ferrara in 1988 and grew up in a garden, at 3 years old I fell in love with informatics and dinosaurs. At age 8 I discovered my deep fascination for archaeology; that was the period I realised what I wanted to work with: ancient stuff, green things and computers. At 16 years old I started drawing seriously: that was the period in which I developed graphic design skills, actually my parallel profession.
Some years later I obtained a bachelor and a master’s degree in Quaternary, Prehistory and Archaeology at the University of Ferrara, even if having both my dissertations about plants. After 3 years spent engaging with community archaeology and graphic-related projects, I felt there was something missing. I had a bee in my bonnet: I wanted more scientific knowledge to balance my profile and to undertake an academic career.
So I began another master, this time in Biodiversity and Evolution, at the University of Bologna. I built my curriculum in Botany and I gained an Erasmus + scholarship for 10 months, that I spent at the University of León, Spain.
Now I am concluding the exams while writing my dissertation. Needless to say, I am actively searching for a doctoral project where I can express my extant skills and acquire new ones.
