Summary

i’m a very enthusiastic person with a background in Bioscience engineering and currently pursuing a phd in Biomedical Sciences. during the past 4 years i acquired a specific expertise in the field of Immunology and Virology, but i have a broad passion for Health and disease in general. my phd has allowed me to explore immune disorders in a more fundamental manner and towards the future i aspire to find a company where i can dedicate myself to translating theory into Clinical practice, with the ultimate intention of improving the patient’s quality of life.
