I graduated in Chemistry in Italy in 2004 with a master project based on the synthesis of novel Peptide Nucleic Acids monomers (PNAs).

I then moved to Cardiff University to obtain a PhD in Organic Material Chemistry in 2009 with a thesis project based on the synthesis and characterisation of novel monomers for the synthesis of Polymers of Intrinsic Microporosity (PIMs) under the supervision of Prof. Neil B. McKeown.

After the PhD I worked as a Post-Doctoral Research Associate within the same group and then I moved to the University of Edinburgh in January 2014 until 2017.

In October 2017 I was appointed Lecturer in Chemistry at Swansea University at the brand new Department of Chemistry, which is my current position and where I do my research. In March 2020 have been promoted Senior Lecturer.

In 2017 I have successfully finished the Postgraduate Certificate Academic Practice (PgCERT) at the University of Edinburgh for which I have become a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy (HEA).
I am also a member of the Royal Society of Chemistry (MRSC) and a STEM Ambassador.
