Anna Napolitano

Anna Napolitano worked in the lab for a long time before deciding that talking about science was more rewarding than doing her experiments. Her talent for writing about science led Anna to be involved in creating stories for different platforms and a wide range of audiences. She collaborates with various outlets and regularly volunteers for Native Scientists, promoting science education among migrant children. Anna graduated from the University of Naples Federico II and got a PhD in immunology from the Vita-Salute San Raffaele University. She also studied science journalism at the University of the West of England. Originally from Italy, Anna is now a Londoner by heart. She loves travelling, especially if it leads to the seaside.
