Curriculum Vitae

 

 

 

Short CV

I received my master's degree in Pharmaceutical Chemistry and Technology in 2011 at the University of Naples "Federico II". I started my experience at the Zoological Station in 2013 with a PhD in Animal Biology, achieving the title in 2017, with a thesis on the study of mechanisms involved in the nervous regeneration of Octopus vulgaris, through the use of microscopy and tracing techniques, and analysis of gene expression.

From 2017 to 2019 I was involved as Post-doc in two research projects: one aimed at applying new imaging technologies for the characterization of regeneration in cephalopods, the other focused on the identification and localization of nociceptors and receptors in the arms and suckers of the common octopus.

From 2018 I am a member of one of the 'working groups' of the James S. McDonnell Foundation, "Transforming Discovery: historians, philosophers and life scientists exploring regeneration" (2019-2021) which promotes collaboration between historians and philosophers of science and practicing life scientists in studies of regeneration across complex living systems.

Since 2019 I have been assigned, as CTER, to BEOM Department, to support research in the physiology laboratories of marine organisms and appointed as Manager for the Research Area of Physiology and Behavior.

Tasks

Technical support to research in the physiology laboratories of marine organisms, including the execution of experiments and the management of electrophysiology instruments; microinjection and neurophysiology techniques.

Manager for the Research Area of Physiology and Behavior.
