I was born in Milan in 1988. In 2011 I obtained the Bachelor's Degree in Physics at the Università degli Studi di Milano, defending a degree thesis about a quantitative model for the kinetics of yeast replication, and its comparison to high-throughput genomics data. In 2013 I graduated from the "Physique des Systèmes Biologiques" Master 2 in Paris (Université Paris-Sud / Université Paris VII); my final project dealt with the mathematical modelling of phenotypic switching evolution in presence of epigenetic heritability. I'm currently a graduate student at the Institut de Biologie de l'École Normale Supérieure, Paris. My project is about phenotypic heterogeneity and switching in bacterial isogenic populations, which I tackle through a combination of theoretical and experimental tools.
