My interests integrate biological and evolutionary approaches in Anthropology.
I graduated in Natural Sciences in 1999 at the University of Florence with an ethological Thesis on mangrove crabs in Kenya.
Then, I did a PhD in the Department of Primatology at the Max Planck Institute of Evolutionary Anthropology in Leipzig about the reproductive strategies of Records and I obtained a Doctoral Degree at the University of Leipzig (2007).
I won a scholarship as a post-Doctorate from the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation (2008) at the German Primatologico Centre (DPZ) in Göttingen, Germany, and in 2010 I got a Marie Curie Action-Incoming scholarship co-financed by the EU and by the Autonomous Province of Trento.
My main interests bring together behavioural, physiological, ecological and now also conservational aspects of some species of primates.
In particular, in Khao Yai National Park, Thailand, I studied white-handed gibbons and red colobus from the Udzungwa Mountains in Tanzania.
I will be happy to share my interests, so do not hesitate to contact me.
