Foto Kyria 24.png

I am Kyria Finardi, the leader of this research group and the first person in my family to have a PhD. I have two wonderful sisters who have given me wonderful nephews. I can't have children and whenever my mother introduces me, she says that I'm not a mother but... I'm a PhD and a teacher... maybe trying to give some importance to my life... I consider myself a very blessed person because I do what I like most (research/education) and in addition to getting paid for it, I meet wonderful people and learn a lot in my work, which is also my life. In this photo, taken recently, I am looking ahead and upwards, which is how I want to be in 2024... an emblematic year for me as I celebrate 10 years as leader of this group and assume leadership of another, as president of AILA. I hope I can continue to inspire and be inspired by those who walk with me on this journey
