I was born in Rome in 1972. Since 2007 I am Research Group Leader in Paleoneurology at the National Research Centre for Human Evolution in Burgos, Spain.

I got a University Degree in Biology and a PhD in Animal Biology, both at the University La Sapienza, Rome. My university career was mainly oriented in zoology, but the final experimental thesis was in human ecology. The PhD was on human paleoneurology, based on digital anatomy and computed morphometrics. I got post-doc grants in paleoneurology and human anatomy. I collaborated and worked as curator of osteological collections in museums of zoology and anthropology. I am member and councillor of the Italian Institute of Anthropology, and Adjoint Professor in Paleoneurology at the Center for Cognitive Archaeology, Colorado University.

I play and study guitar since I was thirteen. I played bass guitar in a jazz school, a bit of piano, and then I stepped into ethnic music with didgeridoo and percussions. Finally, I met the Andean quenas, and began playing and studying flutes. And ukulele. I play folk, jazz, blues, bossa, and tango. And I dance tango, wherever.

Here a list of all my blogs.

  • How to become a super memorizer – and what it does to your brain
    New research shows that we can train our brains to become memory champions To many of us, having to memorize a long list of items feels like a chore. But for others, it is more like a sport. Every year, hundreds of these ‘memory athletes’ compete with one another in the World Memory Championships, memorising hundreds of words, numbers, or other pieces of inf […]
