as a Scientist i am looking forward to advance my Career in an international and competitive environment that requires challenging and complex scientific work related to Project Management. i am highly skilled in designing and performing scientific and technical Research, and developing complex experiments. i always keep a helicopter view on the subject of interest while i am very careful with all the details regarding the distinct development stages. i enriched my skills in project and budget management by successfully coordinating interdisciplinary Research projects focused on material science and Biomedical topics. i developed as well my Leadership skills by coordinating the Research and Data Management projects. i am an efficient negotiator and a Communication facilitator between the stakeholders.
PhD student Leuven, BelgiumNovember 2010 --- October 2016
the main Research topic of my phd project was, firstly, the study of the aggregation process of the aβ Peptides (small peptide responsible for alzheimer disease) and, secondly, the interaction of the aβ aggregates with the neurons membrane by means of bio–afm/force Spectroscopy. i have employed the afm - imaging mode for monitoring the aggregation behavior of the aβ Peptides and afm - force Spectroscopy for quantitatively evaluate the interaction forces that occur between the aβ Peptides and the cells membrane at single Molecule level.
i have vast experience tackling also with other Nanomedicine Research topics revealed by the collaboration with peter carmeliet Lab (vib, belgium) in the study of Cancer metastasis, and furthermore, by the collaboration with kirsten l. van landuyt Lab (ku leuven, belgium) related to the study of new dental materials.
