Presently Research collaborator (Postdoc) of Prof. Andrea Cavalli, in the Computational and Chemical Biology group @ IIT, Italian Institute of Technology, in Genova. 

Previous experiences include an External Professional collaboration at the IAC-CNR in Rome, the Bioinformatician and Computational Biologist position held at Neuroservice, a private CRO based in Aix-en-Provence (France), together with my two PostDocs, respectively in the group of Prof. Paolo Ruggerone at Physics Dep. of UniCa(gliari), Italy and at Sapienza University of Rome in the Biocomputing group head by Prof. Anna Tramontano.

I got my PhD in Physics and Chemistry of Biological Systems at the Molecular and Statistical Biophysics group at SISSA, in Trieste (IT), under the supervision of Prof. Giovanni Bussi, and both my Bachelor (Biotech) and Master (Bioinformatics) at the Tor Vergata University of Rome.
