I graduated in Cellular and Molecular Biology at the University of Turin in April 2015. I spent almost two years for my Master thesis working on the  effect combination of modified gold nanoparticles and ultrasounds on cancer cells. In that period I had the chance to appreciate the advantages and the challenges of the research, and I began to be interested in nanodevices employed for the treatment of human and animal pathologies.

Now I am doing the PhD in Electrical, Electronics and Communications Engineering at Politecnico of Turin, where I work in TNH Lab, focusing my activity on the fabrication and the physical and biological characterization of ZnO nanoparticles in order to employ this system for the treatment of human carcinomas.
