Personal profile

Biography

I graduated at university of Rome "La Sapienza" with a Master of Degree in Ecobiology. For my graduation thesis, I did a project on dogs. I studied if there is a relationship between personality and diseases vulnerability in shelter dogs. I'm actually working on another paper about influence of adoption on shelter dogs' temperament. Previously I took part for a year in a research about small mammals (Dormouse and Mice). I worked in the Orangutan Health Project in Indonesia as Project Assistant for 3 months. Then I also worked again on shelter dogs to test in CBD reduce signals of stress.
I recently started a PhD at the University of Western Australia to study how personality affects survival in Western Ringtail Possums.
