Since 2012 I have been working as a Research Scientist at the National Cancer Institute of Milan, studying different kinds of rare tumors through the application of several scientific techniques. I have also been involved in the management of diagnostic procedures, of digital histological archives and in scientific and clinical data management, demonstrating the ability to handle many different data projects.

During my time as a Research Scientist, I published my works on international scientific journals and I participated as a speaker in national scientific conferences. I also collaborated with several research teams and I developed excellent interpersonal skills; I can work autonomously and in a team setting and I have the ability to communicate clearly and concisely. Moreover, due to the nature of my work, I am strongly motivated to achieve results, using a methodical and organized approach. I am an effective organizer in planning and carrying out different project tasks, being able to identify and solve problems efficiently.  

My Education includes:

- Post Graduate Master’s Degree in ‘’Pharmaceutical Management and Marketing’’ with Project Management specialization, focusing on the management of clinical studies (2015)

- PhD in Experimental Pathology and Neuropathology (2012)

- Master’s Degree in Biology Applied to Biomedical Research (2008)

- Bachelor’s Degree in Biological Sciences – Pharmacology specialization


I would like to work in Clinical Research to build on my knowledge and experience further and to create a real impact on patient’s health.
