You just landed in my scholar website.

I’m a neuroscience enthusiast (currently Assistant Professional Researcher) at the University of California San Francisco. I have been drawn to psychobiology and neuroscience for  >10 years now, on a journey across cities and continents. I was born and raised in Naples, Italy.

See you around at.. virtual meetings I guess for now.
