I am an industrial biotechnologist by training, and I have a multidisciplinary background including molecular biology, biochemistry, nanotechnology, tissue engineering and bioelectronics. My major research interest lies at the interface between bioelectronics and stem cell fate, with a particular focus on musculoskeletal regeneration.
So far, I have carried out my research activities in different countries such as Italy, Sweden, Singapore, the UK and France.
In 2016 I was awarded a Marie Sklodowska-Curie fellowship with the SMART-BONE project to explore the combined use of stem cells and bioelectronics for bone tissue engineering.
My goal is now to implement smart, 3D in vitro models replicating the human bone niche allowing for continuous monitoring of relevant parameters. The established in vitro platform could represent a valuable tool for pharmacological studies, tumour invasion studies and to investigate the effects of radiotherapy and chemotherapy in the frame of a personalized medicine approach.
As for my volunteering activities, I have recently been elected as ordinary member of the Marie Curie Alumni Association Board. I am interested in researchers’ wellbeing and I am active in organizing initiatives to understand researchers’ mental health and tackle current challenges.
