Summary of career/studies:

I graduated in Biological Sciences at University of Milano-Bicocca in 2015. Then, I obtained my master’s degree in Biology at University of Milano – Bicocca in 2018. During my master thesis project, I worked on the role of the transcription factor Sox2 and its target genes in the maintenance of glioma cancer stem cells. For my PhD studies, I have decided to move to SISSA in Trieste to join the laboratory of Cerebral Cortex Development because of my strong interest in the Central Nervous System and in particular in human brain development.
