I am a postdoctoral researcher, Simons Fellow on Origins of life, working at Stanford University in the Martinez group. My PhD work was focused on the topic of theoretical chemistry and photosynthetic systems (more details on my research interests can be found here). I am now interested in reaction dynamics which can describe the Origins of Life (aminoacids and nucleotides). During my PhD, I completed a secondary field in computer science and engineering and obtained a Master’s of Arts degree in Physics.

Previously, I lived in the north of Italy where these beautiful mountains are found. While there, I completed a Bachelor’s degree in Chemistry and a Master’s degree in Physical-Chemistry at the University of Milan working with Prof. Michele Ceotto.
