After completing my studies in Experimental and Applied Biology at University of Pavia, I obtained a PhD in Biomolecular Science and Biotechnology at the Institute for Advanced Study of Pavia (IUSS), working in the group of Prof. Andrea Mattevi. There, my research activity was dedicated to the biochemical and structural characterization of enzymes participating in the epigenetic regulation of chromatin. I then moved to the Crystallography group of Nerviano Medical Sciences S.r.l., gaining expertise in the structure-based drug design of small molecules targeting enzymes of pharmacological interest. Later, I joined the group of Prof. Andrea Musacchio at the Max Planck Institute of Molecular Physiology in Dortmund, Germany, where I investigated the function of macromolecular complexes involved in chromosomes congression and cell cycle regulation. Since 2021 I am a member of the Biochemistry and Structural Biology Unit (BSU) at the European Institute of Oncology, where I provide scientific and technical support to the scientists of the institute, mainly focusing of the biophysical and structural characterization of protein targets.
