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. See our Lab Blog: The Skull Box.

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. Then, my PhD was on human paleoneurology, based on digital anatomy and computed morphometrics. I got post-doc grants in paleoneurology and human anatomy. As student, I also received several grants as curator of osteological collections, in museums of zoology and anthropology. I am member of the Italian Institute of Anthropology, member of the Italian Institute of Human Paleontology, 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 hard rock and progressive rock bands, then I moved to a jazz academy, eventually stepping into ethnic music, playing didgeridoo and percussions. I have been studying wooden flutes (quenas) for ten years. And ukulele. I mainly play folk, jazz, blues, and tango. And I dance tango, wherever.

Here a list of all my blogs.

  • Homo erectus temporal lobes
    This week, we provide a new study of temporal lobe evolution in the Homo erectus hypodigm inferred from the middle cranial fossa (MCF) of the skull. Following from our earlier publication this year where we determined a strong reliability for MCF metrics to predict the temporal lobe volume of the brain in extant anthropoids and […]

  • The Genetics of the Transatlantic Slave Trade
    Between the 16th and 19th centuries, approximately 12.5 million people were violently deported from their homes in Africa to the Americas by slavers.

Some of the less tangible pains is the... Continue […]

  • Researchers develop non-invasive deep brain stimulation method
    Researchers at MIT have developed a new method of electrically stimulating deep brain tissues without opening the skullSince 1997, more than 100,000 Parkinson’s Disease patients have been treated with deep brain stimulation (DBS), a surgical technique that involves the implantation of ultra-thin wire electrodes. The implanted device, sometimes referred to as […]
