Associate professor, Pathobiology, University of Guelph

After earning a degree of Veterinary Medicine Degree in Perugia, Italy, I completed a PhD combined residency in anatomic veterinary pathology at the University of Georgia, Athens (USA). Thereafter, I obtained certification from the American College of Veterinary Pathologists, and worked as a postdoctoral research fellow at the Southeast Poultry Research Laboratory (USDA-ARS) in Athens, Georgia.
In 2014 I joined the faculty of the Pathobiology Department, where I developed a research program focused on infectious diseases of poultry and other veterinary species. My work spans from disease surveillance, development of new diagnostic methods for avian infectious diseases, and basic research involving avian viruses (such as Newcastle disease virus and aquatic bird bornavirus).
