Teaching activity:
Courses of “Fundamental Physics” and of “Laboratory of Physics” for Biology and Biotecnology.
Research interests:
Her research activity mainly concerns the study of metalloproteins, and intrinsic disordered proteins as investigated by spectroscopic and nanoscopic techniques. The experimental activity is also supported by molecular dynamics simulations and computational docking. At the present, her interest is also focused to single molecule detection by Raman SERS and scanning probe microscopies (AFM, STM ) approaches for both fundamental and applicative research. A special attention is devoted to applications in the field of nanomedicine to develop ultra-sensitive detection methods by combining biorecognition processes with advanced nanoscopic techniques.
