I am a veterinarian with an MSc in One Health focused on infectious diseases. I was born and raised in Quito, Ecuador, to an Italian-Ecuadorian father and a Russian mother. After graduating from high school, I moved to Bologna, Italy, where I got my DVM. During my second year of my degree, I discovered the fascinating world of infectious diseases, which drove me to build a path in public health, thus, to move to Padua to work on zoonotic influenza A viruses and pursue an MSc in One Health at the Royal Veterinary College and London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine. My last stop before coming to Florida was working from 2015 to 2016 in the National Institute of Public Health Research in Quito, Ecuador. As a Ph.D. student and Graduate Assistant at the One Health Center of Excellence, I assist in the running of the Graduate Certificate in One health, several research projects involving the human-animal interface, and Organizing the One Health Talk and symposiums. In my spare time, I enjoy running, hiking, practicing pilates, traveling, reading, the opera, and experiencing great and exotic food.
