Computational bio-physicist by background (PhD in 2018), I worked as a Cross-Disciplinary Postdoctoral Fellow at the University of Edinburgh (2018-2022). There, I combined molecular dynamics simulations, molecular biology and advanced light microscopy techniques to unveil fundamental mechanisms in nuclear biology. During my research, I typically dealt with designing and performing experiments, as well as with the entire process of imaging/data acquisition and analysis. I got a strong expertise in using standard and advanced light microscopy techniques, such as STORM, FRAP and Single-Particle Tracking.
As part of the Imaging Unity in IEO, I currently support research groups in their acquisitions with light microscopes and in the process of image analysis. I really love to be inspired by science to explore new and breakthrough methodologies to analyse images and data.
