I have a BA and an MA in Japanese studies from La Sapienza university, in Rome, and a second MA in Buddhist Studies from SOAS.

I am the assistant for the Centre of Buddhist Studies at SOAS, and the PG representative for the UK association for Buddhist Studies (UKABS).

In 2018-2019 I did my fieldwork in Japan. I conducted archival research primarily at Eizan bunko, in Sakamoto. I was affiliated to Waseda university, where Prof. Ōkubo Ryōshun was my supervisor.

From January to may 2020 I have taught an introductory module on Japanese religions at Bristol University.

I am one of the recipients of the Robert H. N. Ho Family Foundation Dissertation Fellowships in Buddhist Studies 2020.
