In 2021, she held her PhD in Philosophy at the University of Pisa and the University of Florence, with a research project in History of Medieval Philosophy on the notion of virtus formativa in Albert the Great. She has published on the interaction between natural philosophy and biblical exegesis in Albert the Great, and on his techniques of commentary in the De vegetabilibus. Her recent publications are devoted to the theoretical background of Albert’s natural philosophy, and to the influence of Neoplatonism on Albert’s zoology, botany, and embryology.
