Current Research

My research interests focus on the understanding of life history evolution within the genus Homo and on the evolution of childhood.  I am interested in approaching these themes through the morphological and histological analysis of fossil hard tissues, namely teeth.

Born in Rome, Italy, and raised in several countries throughout Europe and the Americas, I have obtained my BSc cum laude in Anthropology at Sapienza, University Rome in 2014.
