My name is Roberta, I am a native Italian speaker and a professional translator working with English and Italian.

I have a very strong scientific background.

I completed my university studies and obtained a Bachelor degree in Biology at the University of Milan, Italy. I received my PhD in Natural Sciences, specializing in Neurophysiology at the University of Zurich, Switzerland. I worked as a research associate at the Institute of Pharmacology and Toxicology at the University of Zurich, where I investigated the action of general anaesthetics on neuronal activity. I have acquired skills in designing projects, analysing data and writing reports and scientific documents. I contributed to various scientific publications.

In July 2012, I obtained a certificate in translation after attending a course at Words Language Services, WLS.
