I received my MSc in Cognitive Neuroscience from the University of Trento where for my thesis I studied spatial and temporal coding of odorants in honeybee brains using in vivo calcium imaging analysis. For my PhD I am studying how groups of fish cope with the presence of parasitism in their living environment. In general I am interested in examining decision making in noisy environments where cognition is an emergent property of the group.
Living in Konstanz is also very lucky for outdoor activities, in particular for lake water sports. In my spare time I love sailing, swimming in open waters and diving. When the german weather doesn’t allow water activities, I also really enjoy different arts including painting, carving, drawing, music, and learning something very exciting that I don’t yet know about.
