Research interests and PhD project
Project title: The effects at ecosystem level of recurrent environmental stresses in Mediterranean Climate regions
My main research activities focus on environmental stresses in Mediterranean climate regions. In particular I study the variations of Biogenic Volatile Organic Compounds (BVOCs) emitted by stressed woody plants in natural environments and identifying them with GC-MS.

I was born in Montevarchi in 1991. In 2015 I graduated a Bachelor’s degree in Agricultural Sciences (Thesis title: Role and dynamics of organic matter facing climate change - 110/110 cum laude) from the University of Florence.
Furthermore, in 2018 I obtained a Master’s degree in Agricultura Sciences and Technologies (Thesis title: GC-MS analysis of microbial PLFA, in agricultural soils subjected to different management system - 110/110 cum laude) from the same university.
During my Master’s I worked as student counsellor for the Bachelor of Agricultural Sciences students.
Additionally, both during and after my Master’s degree I worked as a volunteer at the Laboratory of Chromatography and Spectrometry at CNR, Sesto Fiorentino.
In 2018 I began my PhD at University of Florence and during my second year of candidature I carried out an international research experience in Australia, working 3 months at Monash University (Melbourne - Victoria) and 4 months at University of Tasmania (Hobart - Tasmania).
At the end of 2019 I was appointed didactic tutor at Faculty of Agriculture, serving as assistant to Math’s professors
