EDUCATION AND RESEARCH ACTIVITY
June 2017 – June 2018. Research fellowship at University of Verona, project funded by the European Social Fund. During the project I collaborated with the Isopan S.p.A. company to modify insulating panels with the insertion of thermoelectric nanomaterials to produce electric energy with heat.
January 2014 – May 2017. PhD in Nanoscience and Advanced Technologies. During the PhD I worked on the synthesis and characterization of lanthanide doped fluoride nanoparticles. My research interest focused on the development of luminescent nanoparticles for optical imaging and nanothermometry purposes.
October 2010 – July 2013. Master’s degree in Experimental Physics. For the master’s thesis I developed a protocol for the functionalization of porous silicon microparticles with a diamine without losing its luminescence and tested the loading and release of a siRNA in the microparticles.
September 2006 – September 2010. Bachelor’s degree in Physics. For the bachelor’s thesis I studied the interaction between RNA aptamers and a silicon nitride surface using a fluorescence microscope.
Inorganic nanoparticles synthesis and characterization (structural and luminescence), spectroscopy (laser, upconversion, fluorometry), experimental design, data analysis.
Italian mother tongue, English professional level, German basic.
In my free time I love homebrewing, slacklining, traveling and training in the gym.
