I graduated in biomedical engineering from Politecnico di Milano - Italy (PhD, 2011). I then moved to UC Berkeley for a postdoc position with Professor Rasmus Nielsen funded by EMBO. In 2014 I returned to Europe as a research fellow with Professor Francois Balloux at UCL funded by HFSP and jointly supervised by Professor Frances Brodsky with funding from NIH. I moved to Imperial College in 2016 and then became Lecturer at Silwood Park in 2017. I joined Queen Mary University of London as Senior Lecturer in Genetics in 2021. In my research, I use statistics and computer science to solve complex questions in human genetics and evolutionary biology. I am a strong advocate of open-source and open-access science. I often deliver outreach activities on human evolution at local communities and supervise secondary school pupils.
