Hello! I got my master degree in bio-inorganic chemistry (in Naples Italy) and I am currently a Ph.D. student in physical chemistry at the University of York, (UK). I am really curious about archeology and I am passionate about sharing chemistry. I love traveling and, like every Italian, eating! Hope you'll have fun with us!
