I obtained my bachelor’s degree and MSc from the Università degli studi di Napoli Federico II (Italy). I grew up on an island in the Tyhrrenian sea from where I moved at the beginning of my studies. Since then I took every opportunity to explore new places and satisfy my ever-deepening curiosity, which over time has driven my journey of self-development.
I am based at Københavns Universitet (Denmark).
Ecophysiology of key species of generalist non-constitutive mixoplankton (GNCM) . I am studying GNCM, specifically focussing on kleptoplastidic ciliates. My research aims at giving a description of the ecological role and physiology of GNCM when submitted to different scenarios. In other words, to investigate their interactions with their surroundings and their responses to changes.
