I’m originally from Milan, Italy, but I now live in Scotland. I'm currently a PhD student in theoretical biology: I use mathematical modelling to investigate the evolutionary-ecological factors driving warfare and other forms of competition between human groups and their role in the evolution of cooperation and complex societies. I’m particularly fascinated by how cultural transmission and epigenetic mechanisms interact with genetic evolution to shape human behaviour.
