Curriculum Vitae

My studies began with a bachelor’s degree in Agricultural Sciences and Technologies, and then continued with a master’s degree in plant biotechnology. Thanks to my experience on my thesis work completed at the IPSP CNR (Turin branch) I have expanded my knowledge in the field of biotechnology applied to arthropods. Subsequently, after obtaining my master’s degree, I worked as a DISAFA (University of Turin) scholarship holder in the entomology sector, on a project called “Molecular investigations on insects of agro-forestry interest”. I essentially carried out all-round analyzes (both molecular and in the field) on the vector leafhoppers of Flavescence dorata, furthermore it was my task to manage the department’s laboratories. Now as a research fellow at the CNR I will deal with grape varietal susceptibility to FD and development of RNAi-based techniques for the defense against Scaphoideus titanus, vector of FD.
