By advanced training, I am a broadly trained neurobiologist. I received my B.Sc. and M.Sc. in Biological Sciences from University of Molise (Isernia, Italy). Then, I completed my doctorate in France where I worked  at the European Synchrotron Radiation Facility (Grenoble) investigating the effect of submillimetric beams generated by a Synchrotron source towards cortex and hippocampus of rats.During my Ph. D. I improved my knowledge of the Central Nervous System and I developed my expertise in the histological, surgical, imaging, and microscopic techniques. 

As postdoc scholar, I started to study the Olfactory System  upon joining Dr. Debra A. Fadool's Laboratory at the Florida State University in Tallahassee, FL where I studied the regulation of metabolism and the impact of obesity on olfactory signaling. I continued to improve skills mentioned before and I learned the electrophysiology techniques, analyzing patch-clamp recordings of microscopic cell-attached patches using the voltage-clamp configuration. 

Furthermore, I volunteered in the FSU PostDoctoral Association as Biological Sciences Department representative first and as President later. I enjoyed coordinating events and workshops with colleagues from other Departments.

Currently, I am staff member of the Histology and Anatomy Shared Resource at HHMI Janelia Research Campus in Ashburn (VA).
