Giuseppe was born in Santeramo, a small town close to Bari. He is currently a third year Ph.D. student in Linguistics at Harvard and Visiting Student in Psychology at Mit. He arrived in North America three years ago, when he started a one-year master program in Linguistics at University of Toronto. Before, he had studied Philosophy in Italy (where he obtained a bachelor and a master degree) and in Germany (Konstanz). His favourite activity is walking around to recover his mental energies but unfortunately the cold winter in Boston doesn't help in that respect.
