I studied Biological sciences at the University of Rome “La Sapienza”. I obtained my master’s degree in Evolutionary Biology, Ecology and applied Anthropology at the University of Rome “Tor Vergata”. During the master course I was trained at the “Centre of Molecular Anthropology for ancient DNA studies”. In 2021 I was awarded a scholarship on the research program “1000 Ancient Italian Genomes: Evidence from ancient biomolecules for unravelling past human population Dynamics (AGED)” supported by the Italian Ministry of Education, Universities and Research (MIUR). Finally, I joined the Felix project as a PhD student, and I will exploit and improve the skills acquired in the field of paleogenomics by recovering and studying DNA from ancient cat’s remains.
