I qualified from the University of Parma (Italy) in 2007. I worked in general practice for seven years during which I matured my interest in ophthalmology and I achieved the French Ophthalmology Certificate in 2013. After completion of a rotating internship in Paris (France) and an ophthalmology Internship in Bologna (Italy) I moved to the UK. Following one year in a general practice hospital I started the BSAVA ophthalmology certificate. I joined the Eye Veterinary Clinic as an intern in 2018 where I commenced a residency program in March 2020 under the supervision of Christine Heinrich.
