Short presentation:

meI’m an active, curious, and dynamic palaeontologist.
I always want to improve my knowledge, mixing several research branches with my know-how, in order to achieve the goals.
I give the best of myself in critical contexts and intense field activities, with a strong attention to preventive planning and efficiency on logistics.
I’m specialized on conservative restoration of fossils and skeletal anatomy of progressive and extinct mammals. I’m an advanced computer user in 2D and 3D rendering, GIS analysis and mapping, collection management, and statistics.
This year, I’m working on a Villafranchian fauna and on an exposition in a local museum. At the same time, I’m writing the results of my PhD about mapping palaeontological data and Big Cats ontogenesis.
