I hold the master’s degree in Animal Biotechnology at the University of Bologna in 2017 (110/110 cum laude). After graduating, I worked one year at the Department of Agricultural and food sciences (DISTAL), University of Bologna. Currently, I am doing the PhD in Agricultural and Environmental Sciences focusing on genomic and genetic data analysis.
