Personal profile

Research interests

I am a PhD research student in the School of Geographical Sciences at the University of Bristol. I am interested in the development of computational methods for phylogenetic studies. During my PhD, I will apply some of these methodologies to better understand the origin of photosynthesis and nitrogen fixation. I obtained my BSc in Biological Sciences at the University of Pisa (Italy). For my dissertation I worked on the convergent evolution in three-spined stickleback (Gasterosteus aculeatus) populations. I completed my MSc project on Conservation and Evolution at the same university. I studied the applicability of miRNA cluster sequences as phylogenetic markers (using simulated sequences and real data from mammals and cyprinodontiform fishes). I also developed a computational method to choose the best markers to implement in phylogenetic analyses. During both my Master’s and Bachelor’s I was an Allievo Ordinario of the Scuola Normale Superiore, a leading institution in the Italian research system.
