Short Biography:

In 2016 I obtained the high school diploma at I.T.A.S. Ginori Conti (Florence, Italy) in Environmental Biotechnologies with a grade of 100/100. In the same year I enrolled in University of Florence in Chemistry faculty. In 2019 I obtained the 1st level Degree in Chemistry with a grade of 110/110 cum laude with the thesis “Metformin analogue functionalized with fluorescent probe”, supervisor Prof. Stefano Cicchi. In 2020 I won the «Dipartimenti Eccellenti 2018-2022» scholarship funded by the Department of Chemistry 'Ugo Schiff' of the University of Florence. In February 2022 I obtained the 2nd level Degree in Chemical Sciences, with a grade of 110/110 cum laude with the master thesis “Design, synthesis, and biological evaluation of peptides derived from Spike protein and nucleocapsid protein of Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome CoronaVirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2)”, supervisor Prof. Anna Maria Papini. After that, I won the research fellowship “Research and development of efficient and sustainable molecules in industrial processes” founded by the Chemistry Department of the University of Florence, which is still my occupation, besides I continue to work on peptides, in particular antiviral peptides.
