I am a 25-year-old Animal Biology graduate from Padova, Italy.
I am very passionate about the natural world, and particularly of herpetology (the study of reptiles and amphibians). After a year of working and travelling in South and Central America, I returned to Europe and completed my MSc in Biodiversity Conservation and Management at the University of Oxford. I recently started a PhD at the University of Sydney in the Whittington-Thompson Lab, on the conservation of turtles living in the river Murray.
I particularly enjoy taking photos of landscapes and wildlife, sports such as hiking and scuba diving, coffee runs through my veins, and travelling is my life.
