About me

I am a Doctor in Agricultural Sciences with a specialisation in Entomology. Although I am not from a traditional farming background, I grew up in a countryside area on the outskirts or Rome, in Italy. I immediately developed a passion for nature and agriculture and I invested to become a professional in sustainable management of crops. My interests are various and include research, innovative agricultural techniques, biosecurity and exotic pests, insect rearing, biological control, sterile insect technique, industry and community engagement, project management, communications and more.
