​​​​​​​​Born in Trento in 1985, he has always loved Nature and in particular Ornithology.
He graduated from the University of Pavia in 2009, with a Thesis entitled "The community of birds nesting in SIC Monte Baldo di Brentonico", and he obtained a Masters Degree in 2011, with a Thesis entitled "Density and selection of the habitat of the White Partridge - Lagopus molt in the western Alps.
"
During his student years, he collaborated with the Section of Vertebrate Zoology of the Museum of Sciences as a technician in monitoring bird nesting, wintering and migratory birds. He took part in major ringing campaigns for the study of migration in Spring (Progetto Piccole Isole) and in the post-reproductive period (Progetto Alpi), coordinated by ISPRA.
In 2008, he obtained a license for scientific ringing. In 2012 and 2013, he worked with the Section of Vertebrate Zoology as a researcher and technician.
Since November 2013, he has been a PhD student at the University of Pavia with a scholarship supported by MUSE - Fondazione Edmund Mach.
He deals with the study of post-breeding migration of birds through the Alps, investigating the geographical origin of individuals and populations using the stable isotope ratios methods of analysis.
