About Me
I am a physicist, expert of scattering techniques for soft matter sciences and membrane biophysics.
Professional Journey
I currently hold the position of a researcher at the Consiglio Nazionale delle Ricerche, Institute for Complex Systems, in affiliation with Sapienza University of Rome. Before the current appointment, I served as an Assistant Professor at Università Politecnica delle Marche. My career began at the Università degli Studi di Parma, where I was awarded a Ph.D. in Physics with a thesis focused on the 'Structure and dynamics of lipid-saccharide complexes'. In 2011 I joined, as postdoctoral fellow, the Institut Laue-Langevin in Grenoble, where I started working in the fields of bio-membranes and their interaction, with particular emphasis on the investigation of structural rearrangements in lipid-based systems. In 2021, my work on lipid flip-flop featured in the Soft Matter Emerging Investigators Issue of the Soft Matter Journal.
As tenured scientist, I was appointed as the coordination of the Partnership for Soft Condensed Matter. This role, held from 2014 to 2020, enabled me to contribute significantly to the scientific community and expand my expertise in experimental techniques applied to soft matter as well as to establish enduring interdisciplinary and international collaborations.
