I received my PhD in Biotechnology at the University of Milano (2012). From 2014 to 2019, I worked as postdoc at the Medical University of Graz (Austria) and at the Institute of Molecular and Cellular Pharmacology (France). During this period, I mastered imaging and biochemistry techniques to tackle the surface dynamics of membrane proteins. I also earned a solid expertise to study protein sumoylation. In June 2019, I joined the team of Prof. Matteoli. Here, I focused my research on the involvement of sumoylation in the etiology of neurodevelopmental disorder. This project is funded by European Commission within the call Horizon 2020’s Marie Skłodowska-Curie actions 2018.
