Welcome to my blog

This is where you’ll find me rambling about my thoughts, life experiences, the Ph.D., my hometown, my love for Neapolitan customs and food. Also, some cool science I find around.

Let’s take a step back: why did I do a PhD?

For those of you that do not know me, I come from a relatively big town in the suburbs of Naples, in Italy. One of those overpopulated but very sad places where there is not too much to do, or many jobs to find.

This story begins from its end

This story begins from its end. Or somewhere in the middle. It starts with the end of a PhD, with long months spent trying to understand my next move. What was I doing? Where was I going?
So many doubts. Among all of them, one thing was sure: my PhD was not going to define me.

One year of pandemic. How am I coping?

As days become longer and weeks seem to get shorter, we have “celebrated” one year into the pandemic.

How is everyone holding up? This is how I am handling it.

A job I love and our first issue.

If you have followed my adventures on this blog, you probably know that this has been a weird year (I mean, wasn’t it for everyone?) in which I have tried to find myself, in the middle of a pandemic, on the other side of the world.
