After graduating in Biochemistry from the University of Pavia in 1993, I worked for 2 years at the Mangiagalli Clinic in Milan as a postgraduate fellow studying genetic and chromosomal abnormalities in spontaneous abortion. I then joined Prof. Di Fiore’s group at the European Institute of Oncology (IEO), studying the mechanisms and regulation of receptor internalization. In 2000, I moved to the FIRC Institute of Molecular Oncology (IFOM) in Milan where I was appointed Staff Scientist in Computational Biology in Di Fiore’s group in 2001. Through my work, I have developed a broad expertise in a range of bioinformatics tools, programs and software, in particular in protein alignment, domain identification, protein folding and structure prediction.

In 2010, I was appointed Head of the Molecular Pathology Facility situated first at the IFOM-IEO Campus, then at IEO. Here, I gained experience in tissue microarray (TMA) technology, collection and organization of clinical samples, TMA design and production, and data acquisition and analysis.

Since 2015, I have been serving as the Computational Biologist in Di Fiore’s group at IEO, where I am supporting “in silico” research activities, project planning and data analysis of ”omics” experiments. In these last years, I have acquired expertise in MS proteomics, NGS technologies and data analysis software.

Alongside my research activities, I teach Computational Biology in PhD programs of the European School of Molecular Medicine (SEMM).
