I currently work as Researcher at ISI Foundation in the Data Science Group. I study animal behavior, animal welfare, and human behavior. My work focuses on Animal Social Network, Contact Networks between human beings, and infectious disease dynamics.

I received my Master degree in Veterinary Medicine (Department of Veterinary Medicine), a Master degree in Evolution of Animal and Human Behavior (Department of Life Sciences and Systems Biology) and a 2nd level University Master degree in Clinical Behavioral Diseases in dogs and cats at the University of Turin (Italy).

I received my PhD in Biology and Applied Biotechnologies at the University of Turin. My PhD project focused on the analysis of animal welfare and behavior using non-invasive methods in domestic and exotic species. I collaborated with Institute of Medical Biochemistry (University of Veterinary Medicine, Vienna, Austria), Prof. Laura Anfossi of Department of Chemistry (University of Turin) and with Prof. Samantha Ward of School of Animal, Rural and Environmental Sciences (Nottingham Trent University, Nottingham, UK).
