Science isn't limited to what happens in a lab, I want people to see and understand the importance of social science. Outside of this, you can find me in forests or up the mountains with my 3 black labradors.

I have a BA in Immunology, and an MSc in Science and Health Communication. I'm all about how lifestyle affects us both physically and mentally. There's so much science behind all of this, but the information isn't reaching the wider community.

Marine biology has been the centre of my world since I was 14. This has led me to get a B.Sc. and a M.Sc. in marine biology and ecology back home in Italy and eventually to move to Ireland to follow the main target of my interest in the last years, i.e. sponges!
