I am an interdisciplinary researcher who values creativity, innovation and dedication.
Coming from a Physics Engineering background, I diversified my training by doing a Master in Science in Bioengineering. A driver in my professional path has been my interest in developing Microfluidic Technologies that allow for studying, in a novel, accurate and relevant manner, small biological entities and phenomena.
I am a Doctor in Science from ETH Zurich. In my doctoral thesis I studied, with an interdisciplinary approach, the heterogeneity in the dynamics of heat shock response, using as a model organism the nematode C. elegans. This project was powered by microfluidic platforms and mathematical modelling.
My fondness for Quantitative Biology approaches brought me to my current Postdoc position in the Physical Microfluidics and Bioengineering Unit at Institut Pasteur. In my first project I have led the characterization of Double-Strand Break Repair, at single-cell resolution, using S. cerevisiae as a model organism. To do this, I was granted the INCEPTION PostDoc Funding 2020 for Interdisciplinary Projects.
Currently, I am applying my skills in the development of microtechnologies into the derivation of Organoids from Pluripotent Stem Cells.
