Alessia di Flora

I'm Alessia di Flora, a marine biologist. I'm Italian and obtained a Bachelor's degree in Biology with a thesis on an inherited genetic disease in my family (MEN). Then I decided to follow my deep love for the ocean and I obtained a Master's degree in Marine Biology and Ecology cum laude with a thesis on bio-remediation by marine fungi. In my future work I would like to search for new bioactive compounds. I chose to spend my Erasmus+ traineeship post-lauream at CIIMAR within the CY-SENSORS project under the supervision of Isabel Cunha because it is a project that embodies everything I would like to do in the immediate future as a researcher.
