I am a molecular and evolutionary biologist, specialized in Palaeogenomics, field that I have been working on for the last 9 years. I am driven to understand and study the past and answer historical and evolutionary questions through the study of ancient DNA in interdisciplinary settings.

My work focuses on exploring, implementing and developing new laboratory methodologies for the generation of palaeogenomic data to study and understand population origins, extinction processes and the evolutionary history of different species.
