Brief Bio

I graduated in 2012 as DVM from the University of Padova (Italy), upon successful defense of a thesis on echocardiography in dogs. I followed up with my growing interest in veterinary cardiology and research, starting my PhD at Virginia Tech in 2013. Upon successful defense of the thesis “Advanced Echocardiographic Imaging In Dogs With Myxomatous Mitral Valve Disease,” I was awarded my PhD in May 2017. In July 2017, I will start my position as a resident in Veterinary Cardiology at Virginia Tech. This program will allow me to deepen the clinical aspect of this field and to follow up with my research and professional goals.
