Ciao. I am Marco Graziano, an Italian fish biologist actually pursuing a Ph.D. Degree in a Canadian University.
I have a Bachelor in Biological Sciences address Marine Biology and Oceanography and a Master’s Degree with honors in Marine Biology obtained at the “Polytechnic University of Marche” in Ancona, Italy. I took part in research projects on reproductive biology and swimming physiology of fish both for my Bachelor’s and Master’s thesis and then, I continued making science in this field in two EU funded research project after the graduation. My actual Ph.D. experience is following these interests and it deals with the reproductive ecophysiology and evolution of migratory species. However, although I am passionately continuing my career as researcher this page is not the right context to face the argument.

Beside this, I have always been tremendously and unstoppably attracted by nature, by all its variegated products. During my life, particularly during my academic one, I have understood the importance of representing nature through a pencil, that then has become an i-pencil, in order to expand the understanding of the natural world around us..to deeply perceive how much it is fascinating, evolved, marvellously packed, intricate and complex but also simple, perfect and in balance at the same time.
