Welcome to my little corner of the Internet.
From the seaside in Naples (Italy, not Florida), it’s 30 years that I am figuring out stuff (who I am, what I love, where I am going) and then changing my mind.
My curiosity led me to a PhD in chemistry (in York, in the UK) and keeps driving me around, like an annoying itch in the brain. After a short stop in Texas (in the middle of the pandemic), I now live in Heidelberg, Germany, where I work in the editorial world. My biggest dream is to do something good for my beautiful hometown.
I believe that science and science communication are our biggest hope.
I am an Italian Science Communicator with a PhD in Chemistry
I cannot wait to see where the next adventure will take me.
Science Communication and Outreach
I love writing about Science, showing what there is behind everything we do. I write for different types of audiences – from more specialised to the general public. Check out my portfolio page.
Playing with chemistry is a thing I have not done when I was a kid, but something that everyone should be doing. Because it is really fun and I enjoy playing chemist with future scientists.
Laser and Mass spectrometry
During my PhD, I’ve used a Nd:YAG laser to study how molecules interact with light. We used a laser-integrated mass spectrometer to study them in the gas phase. Alongside the PhD, I worked part time in the mass spectrometry facility of the Department of chemistry on a broad range of instruments.
