After completing a BA in Communication Science and Foreign Languages at the University of Bergamo in Italy, I enrolled into the MA program in American studies at the University of Leipzig. I had come to know the city and the university during my year I spent in Leipzig as an Erasmus student. I applied for the program as it combined my interest in American literature and culture with the possibility of continuing my academic career in Germany.

I completed my MA with a thesis titled "The Male Detective in Neo-Noirs: Male Subjectivity, Masculinity, and Homosocial Bonds in Se7en and Insomnia" and I am currently a PhD student at the institute.

My main areas of interest are American literature and popular culture, as well as gender and queer theory.
