He has studied Arabic and Swahili at the University of Naples „L‘Orientale“, up to the M.A. in Sciences of Languages, History and Culture of the Mediterranean and the Islamic Countries, achieved in October 2017. Actually he is carrying out a PhD research in cotutelle between the University of Naples „L‘Orientale“ and the University of Bayreuth. The main focus of his research is the history of the metrical systems developed in Swahili and Wolof classical literatures, and the analysis of their several similarities derived in both cases from the influence of Arabic language and culture.

Besides Wolof and classical Swahili poetry, his other research interests concern modern Swahili poetry and theatre, especially the works of Farouk Topan and Ebrahim Hussein.
