ANDREA TONELLI

PhD student, Sapienza University of Rome

Andrea is a PhD student, and former MSc student, in the lab working on the prediction of zoonotic risk associated to blueprint diseases. The aim of his PhD project is to assess the zoonotic hazard posed by mammalian viruses at global scale, understanding the distribution patterns of viral diversity, and the priority for monitoring zoonotic risk.

CHIARA DRAGONETTI

PhD student, Sapienza University of Rome

​Chiara is a PhD student, and former MSc student, in the lab working on the impacts of global change on mountain biodiversity from a local to global scale. She completed a MSc where she studied the change of the niche breadht of mountain's mammals under future climatic conditions, and an internship where she investigated to role of corridors for local movements of mountain mammals.
