Enrico obtained his bachelor and master degree from the University of Padua.
For his master thesis he moved to the University of Leicester where he studied the diapause of Drosophila melanogaster in the lab of Bambos Kyriacou.
He then joined the group of Charlotte Förster at the University of Würzburg where he studied and characterized the circadian clock of selected non-model insect species.
He obtained his PhD in 2018 and continued with a project on the anatomical and functional characterization of the dorsal clock neurons of D. melanogaster.
Enrico joined the Benton lab in January 2021 to work on the genetic mapping of gustatory preferences.
