I am a freelance science writer and journalist born in 1988 in the heart of the Po Valley in Italy. I started my career studying physics and specializing in condensed matter and applied physics. And it was there at the university of Modena, following a course of communication and ethics of science, that I decided to become a science communicator and a journalist.
So I got a master's degree in digital science journalism at SISSA in Trieste and then I began to work with different realities of scientific communication. Among these I have a long-term collaboration with the magazine Wired Italy, with the publishing house Pearson and with a series of journals like OggiScienza and L’Unità. My main area of interest remains physics, but I often write about scientific hoaxes, energy and sustainability, with a particular focus on scientific issues related to current political events or daily episodes and news.
Among the other activities, I am engaged against cyberbullying (especially in adolescence) and I often hold training courses in the schools on the use of internet. Since 2013 I am also a videomaker specialized in the coverage of scientific events and in the realization of short documentaries. When there is the opportunity, I moderate talk shows about technology or tell a little science in radio programs. In most social networks I am @undotti.
