Through my Mcs studies, completed in 2017 at Università Politechinca delle Marche, Dep. DISVA, Ancona (IT), I moved my first steps towards microplastics (MP) research.
I dedicated myself to the quantification and characterization of MP in marine species of the Adriatic Sea.
I was also very inspired by the participation in the Erasmus Placement program. During six months, I worked at Universidade do Algarve Dep. CIMA, Faro (PT), studying the effects of plasticizers present in plastics.
After this wonderful collaboration, I also wanted to dedicate myself to the economic and sustainability aspects of the Mediterranean Sea. To gain new experience, I trained as an ICCAT Regional Observer to monitor the purse seine fishery for Thunnus thynnus and worked in this capacity during the summer of 2018.
I found after this experience that my thirst for knowledge was not yet satisfied, so I moved to Helgoland in the fall of 2018. Through a very close collaboration with the Alfred Wegener Institute (SSSE), and the Senckenberg Gesellschaft für Naturforschung (Frankfurt am Main), I dedicated myself to MP research in the Kuril Kamchatka deep-sea trench as a PhD student at Goethe University Frankfurt.

I love to cook, mainly traditional Italian dishes, but also international recipes, the main thing is to enjoy with friends and family together at the table. I love to go hiking in the nature, snowboarding and I am involved in any kind of outdoor activity.
