Curriculum Vitae

I am a research fellow for the project “SpecFor”, where I study the relationship between holm oak decline and biotic stress. I have obtained a bachelor’s degree in Biology and a master’s degree in Molecular Biology at “Università degli Studi di Firenze”. During my training I studied the molecular evolution of the histidine operon in proteobacteria (e.g. Escherichia coli and Burkholderia cenocepacia) with experiments of directed evolution. I worked for the Biology Department of “Università degli Studi di Firenze” in the molecular and microbial evolution laboratory, where I continued my research and took part in works regarding the taxonomic and phenotypic characterization of bacterial isolates from soil samples and/or medicinal plants (e.g. Origanum sp.). During this period, I learned the use of bioinformatics softwares and tools for data analysis.
