Graduate Student Fellow

I am a PhD student in the Integrated Anthropological Sciences program at UC Santa Barbara. My interests include biocultural evolution, cooperation and conflict across systems, and especially the field of evolutionary medicine, with a focus on cancer and microchimerism.
I received a bachelor’s and master’s degree in Oriental Studies from the University of Rome “Sapienza”, and a master’s degree in Anthropology from the University of Milan "Bicocca". After graduating, I started collaborating with the Cancer and Evolution lab at Arizona State University, and with the Cooperation Science Network, an interdisciplinary research group founded by Arizona State University and Rutgers University.
