Hello, I am a molecular microbiologist by training (PhD in Biotechnology, MSc in Biological Sciences), working as environmental consultant and adjunct senior scientist in Perth. I am the founding director of Econumerics Consultants, member of various scientific societies and committees, co-founder of the West Coast Microbiome Network, and also serve as Associate Editor and Reviewer for several peer-reviewed international journals.
I have over twenty years of teaching, research and consultancy experience, gained in Australia, Italy, and USA. In Australia, I have collaborated with a variety of clients including the WA Water Corporation, Swan River Trust, Fiona Stanley Hospital, Department of Health, Bayer Healthcare, Bayer Australia, Water Research Australia, Pawsey Supercomputing Centre, DHI Water & Environment Pty Ltd, and ALCOA of Australia Ltd.
I graduated in Biological Sciences at the University of Rome Tor Vergata, and then completed a PhD in Biotechnology at the University of Siena, Italy. In Rome, I worked as a full-time academic for about 10 years as Assistant Professor (research intensive) or Lecturer in Bioinformatics, Public Health, Ecology and Biotechnology. After a postdoctoral training at the prestigious Scripps Research Institute in San Diego, CA, USA, I moved to Perth, first at The University of Western Australia (Centre for Water Research) and then Murdoch University (School of Veterinary and Life Sciences).
I can assist in the preparation and critical reviewing of assignments, homework, dissertations, theses, presentations, seminars, papers, reports, reviews, proposals, applications etc. With over twenty years of experience in academic teaching and research I also offer support for laboratory- and field- work, and assistance in laying the groundwork for initiating and executing quantitative and qualitative research. If you prefer meeting me in person, I can offer expert tutoring in a variety of scientific subjects. Please feel free to contact me to discuss your specific needs and expectations.
