I am working on IUVS beamline at the Elettra - Sincrotrone Trieste Laboratory as beamline scientist. My research activity is focused on the chemical-physical investigation of molecular liquids, soft matter and and bio-molecules, such as DNA, peptide and proteins trough Raman and UV Resonance Raman spectroscopy and neutron scattering techniques. Fellow of the Royal Society of Chemistry, over 120 articles in peer-reviewed journals and 3 book chapters ( H-index - 28), 40 invited talks and lectures at International Conferences, Symposiums and Schools.

July 2003: Laurea in Physics, Summa cum Laude, University of Trento.
December 2003: PhD in Physics, University of Trento.

International prizes:
June 2020: Fellow of the Royal Society of Chemistry
