In 1999, I earned a Master's in Biological Sciences, specializing in electrophysiology, from the University of Milano. In 2004, I completed a Ph.D., studying anion currents' regulation of cell volume. My expertise expanded to laser scanning confocal microscopy and Fluorescence Resonance Energy Transfer (FRET).

From 2005 to 2009, I led the CIMaINa confocal microscopy unit. At Fondazione Filarete (2009 onward), as Staff Technologist and Optical Microscopy Coordinator, I worked on diverse projects like nanoparticle internalization, cell adhesion, protein-protein interactions, and correlative microscopy.

Joining ETH Zürich in 2015, I became a Staff Scientist, leading the Microscopy Training Program. Managing four electron microscopes, I trained students in electron, optical, and correlative microscopy. The organized courses, part of the ETHZ course catalogue, covered both basic and advanced microscopy techniques.

In 2018, I joined the European Institute of Oncology, overseeing the Imaging Unit. Collaborating with DEO researchers, I conduct optical microscopy experiments using various imaging modes on diverse samples, including human tissues. I actively contribute to microscopy and image analysis courses at the European School for Molecular Medicine and provide hands-on training for UNIMI master’s students, underlining my commitment to imparting technical skills to the next generation of scientists.
