I am a biologist, award-winning wildlife filmmaker and photographer with expertise in animal behaviour and experience of shooting in varied locations across the globe. I graduated from an M.Sc. in Biology at the University of Rome and an MA in Wildlife Documentary Production at the University of Salford.
I have always combined my studies in biology with filmmaking and photography. I collaborated with the ISTC of the National Research Council of Italy and the EthoCebus Research Project, documenting the behaviour of capuchin monkeys and making videos and photographs that were presented at scientific conferences and exhibitions.
I was awarded at international film festivals, including being a winner at the Ireland Wildlife Film Festival, International Nature Film Festival Gödöllő, and a finalist at the International Wildlife Film Festival and Nature inFocus Film Awards. I was also a runner-up at the Royal Society Publishing Photographic Competition 2015. My works were published on scientific journals and magazines (New Scientist, Science Illustrated, Nature, PNAS, Royal Society Publishing, Focus, La Repubblica) and were broadcasted on Italian national tv programmes, such as Superquark (Rai1) and L'Arca di Noè (Canale 5).
I aim to combine science and entertainment to make wildlife films that raise people's awareness about environmental issues, particularly climate changes, biodiversity loss and exploitation of natural resources.
