The study of proteins and of how the interact with surfaces is crucial for the production of new devices and technologies of use in the diagnostic or energy field. Fascinated by the interaction of proteins with material surfaces, I have studied proteins and enzymes from different classes to confer fluorescent, structural, or biocatalytic properties to materials. Proteins are key players in the metabolism of all organisms, where they absolve a multitude of functions that can be applied to material surfaces thus developing novel functional biomaterials.
I have studied and worked in the UK, in Italy, in Finland, and now in Switzerland where I enjoy imagining novel applications for proteins (see my PUBLICATIONS).
