I studied medicine at University of Florence, where I obtained my MD degree in 2003, with a dissertation about Natural Killer cells immunodeficiencies and susceptibility to herpetic infections. In 2007 I completed my residency program in Allergy and Clinical Immunology at University of Florence (with a dissertation about a series of children with NK immunodeficiencies and herpetic encephalitis), and just after I began my PhD course in Clinical and Experimental Medicine in the same Unit, which I completed in 2011 with a dissertation about laboratory techniques in molecular allergology.

During these years I've been involved in clinical research projects, in both fields of immunology and allergology, which special interest in laboratory techniques.

Since 2009 I serve as secretary/treasurer for the Junior Members Group of the Italian Society of Allergy and Clinical Immunology (SIAIC).

Since 2010 I work as allergist and immunologist in the Immunology and Cell Therapies Unit (Directed by Prof. Enrico Maggi) at University of Florence, Careggi University Hospital.
