I hold a degree in theoretical physics from the University of Pavia (2003), a master in science communication from the International School for Advanced Studies in Trieste (2005), a MSc in the History of Science, Medicine and Technology from Imperial College London (2009) and a PhD in Science, Technology, and Humanities from the University of Bologna (2013). In July 2017 I received the Italian habilitation as assistant professor in the academic field “11/C2: Logica, Storia e Filosofia della Scienza” [Logic, History of Science and Philosophy of Science].
For the past ten years I have worked as historian, science writer and editor in Italy, Germany, and the UK. Parolini_CV_July_2017
I like books, old things, and warm jumpers. I wish there were an ad hoc profession for the people who want to read books, keep old things and wear warm jumpers.
