I hold a DPhil (PhD) from the University of Oxford, and a BA in English and Art History and an MA in English from the University of Geneva, where I wrote a thesis on the dramatisation of witchcraft in early modern drama under the guidance of Professor Lukas Erne. In 2013 I was awarded the Berrow Foundation Scholarship and in 2018 a ‘Mobility.doc’ scholarship from the Swiss National Science Foundation, thanks to which I was able to fund my doctoral research at Lincoln College, University of Oxford, where I wrote my doctoral thesis under the supervision of Prof. Adam Smyth (and previously Prof. Tiffany Stern) on the reception of early modern English drama in the first half of the seventeenth century. In February 2020 I joined the research team of Professor Isabel Karremann as a postdoctoral researcher in early modern English literature at UZH. Being part of this team is a unique opportunity, as it allows me to develop my own research interests in theatre history, book history, manuscript and print culture, but also to utilise my experience in material culture and digital humanities. 

I am also the organizer of ZEMORS, a biannual digital workshop aiming to promote digital resources with researchers and students, and of the annual "Shakespeare Week" excursion.

In June 2020 I was nominated as “Teacher of the Hour” by students at the University of Zurich.
