I was born in Genoa, Italy in 1984, and I have always been interested in the study of language(s). I hold an Honors Degree in Intercultural Communication from the University of Genoa and an M.A. in Theoretical and Applied Linguistics from the University of Pavia. In 2012, I relocated to the UK to pursue a Ph.D. in Linguistics at Lancaster University, which I completed in 2015.
After completing my studies, I worked as an associate lecturer and a research assistant at Lancaster University, where I gained valuable teaching experience at both undergraduate and postgraduate level. At the same time, I privately worked as a language tutor, translator, and proofreader.
Back in Italy, in December 2018 I joined the Department of Modern Languages and Culture of the University of Genoa as a research fellow. My research interests include English linguistics, language theories, and the history and philosophy of linguistics.
I currently live in the seaside town where I grew up, next to Genoa.
