Biography

I have a background as a scientist in pharmaceutical sciences and clinical research - in particular, my work in this field led to the publication of several scientific articles in peer-reviewed scientific journals, a scientific monograph (my PhD thesis in Structural Bioinformatics and Computational Chemistry), and different patents.

Given my interest in the dialogue between Science and Theology (an interest which was born some years ago while I participated to some student activities on this subject organised by the University of Oxford), I decided to study Theology, and in July 2019 I obtained a MA in Systematic and Philosophical Theology from the University of Nottingham (with distinction). In order to have a strong influence in the dialogue between Science and Theology, following my dissertation in this field, in October 2019 I started to study for a PhD in Theology at the University of Nottingham. In June 2022 I submitted my PhD dissertation and on 6 November 2022 I was informed of the successful outcome of my doctoral work and that I am ready to graduate (on 13 December 2022 I am expecting to attend the ceremony in which I will receive in person the PhD certificate).

Current Research

I completed my doctorate in Theology. In my doctoral dissertation I have studied different writings of Hans Jonas (a famous Jewish philosopher) and demonstrated that his contributions could enrich Christian theology. In my work I have focused on Jonas's theological contributions concerning cosmogony, theodicy and his proof of God's existence.

Future Research

My future aspiration is to work in the field of Science and Theology. In particular, I am interested in theological engagement with the latest scientific research on psychiatry and neuropsychopharmacology: e.g. studying how psychotropic medications can affect moral decisions and/or spiritual/religious experiences.

I am also interested in Judaism and how it could enrich Christian theology.
