I am a Research Fellow in Toxicology and Group Leader at the Institute of Environment, Health and Societies. My research focuses on understanding the multi-scale effects of pharmaceuticals, alone and in combination, and developing predictive models able to inform drug safety assessment for both humans and wildlife.
2007–2011: Ph.D. in Environmental Toxicology, Brunel University, London, UK (supported by GlaxoSmithKline). Integrated testing strategy for the study of the effects of the human pharmaceutical dutasteride on fish.
2003-2005: MSc Marine Biology, Universita’ Politecnica delle Marche, Ancona, Italy.
2000-2003: BSc Biological Sciences, Universita’ Politecnica delle Marche, Ancona, Italy.
2015-to date: Research Fellow & Group Leader, Translational Toxicology, Insitute of Environment, Health and Socities/College of Life Sciences, Brunel University London, UK
2011-2013: Visiting Scientist, AstraZeneca, UK
2011-2015: Post-doctoral Research Fellow, AstraZenenca/Brunel University London, London, UK (funded by BBSRC/AstraZeneca).
