After completing my undergraduate degree in law in Milan (Italy), I earned a doctoral degree in law from Stanford University and completed my post-doc training in bioethics at the University of Geneva. I am the Legal Studies Coordinator and teach courses offered in the College of Arts and Sciences (including the First Year Curriculum), College of Business, and School of Health Sciences.

My current research focuses on science policy issues. I am working on two book projects, both with other scholars. One is a comparative analysis of the regulation of human germline modifications. The other is a monograph on the human right to science (Article 27 of the 1948 Universal Declaration and Article 15 of the International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights).
