Research Interests

I am a graduate student in Natural Sciences at the University of Naples Federico II. During my academic career, I focused my studies on vertebrate and evolutionary paleontology. The research theme of my thesis focused on morphological evolution in the mammalian mandible by using Geometric Morphometrics. In 2016 I published my first paper and expanded my knowledge and skill in setting up and performing experiments, software programming, and added GIS techniques to my research toolbox. All of that is testified by the numerous papers published in high-ranked journals I have co-authored. I am currently a PhD student at Liverpool John Moores University under the supervision of Dr Carlo Meloro. My PhD project focuses on co-evolution between predator-prey long bone shapes.
