I am currently a PhD student at the Center for Systems Neuroscience Hanover (ZSN). In 2020 I got my Master of Science in Music, Mind and Brain at Goldsmiths, University of London, where I conducted a study on deliberate practice and created new instruments for measuring practice quality and improvements in music. I studied piano in Italy, Germany and the United States, where I got my Master of Music at the Colburn School in Los Angeles, under Fabio Bidini’s guidance. I took part in many Masterclasses, getting lessons by eminent pianists such as Matti Raekallio, Susanne Grutzmann, Victor Bogino and Jean-Yves Thibaudet.
