I am originally from central Italy, with a scientific education. By enrolling in Geology I decided to study the territory that surrounds me in a scientific way. During the three-year bechelor degree I carried out a bibliographic study on the seismic sequence of the Colfiorito earthquake and its relationship with fluids. After completing a semester in Spain at the Institute of Geophysics and Meteorology, coming back to Rome I carried out an internship at the HP-HT laboratory at INGV, where I collected the data for my Master's thesis entitled: "Experimental study of the evolution of the Vp / Vs ratio with changes in fluid pressure ". Combining my skills in the field of geophysics, with the experience in the laboratory, in 2019, I developed and won a 3-year PhD with the project: "Reproduce the seismic cycle of a complex fault in the laboratory, and predict the trend with Machine Learning ". Outside of university studies, I am part of projects aimed at re-exploiting the territory as a member of astrophile, meteorological and trekking associations. I also conduct extra-scholastic teaching activities in teaching chess, to elementary, middle and high school students.
