Born in Venosa (PZ) on 20 July 1980, she received on 25/02/2009 her European Ph.D. in Materials Science and Technology, after discussing a thesis titled: "Elaboration of cellular ceramics for filtration and biomedical applications" developed in co-tutoring with INSA (Institut National des Sciences Appliquées) of Lyon (France), in the frame of an Integrated European Project (IP NanoKer). For what concerns her formation, in December 2004, she received her University Degree of Chemistry for Industrial Products and Processes at University of Turin with the mark of 110/110.
From January 2005 she is involved in research activities at the Department of Material Science and Chemical Engineering (DISMIC) of Politecnico, firstly with a fellowship financed by the consortium INSTM, then as Ph.D. student. From July 2011 is Researcher/Assistant Professor at the Politecnico di Torino.
For what concerns her scientific activity, she was mostly involved into the elaboration of polymer-ceramic composites materials. Further activities concern the development of dense and porous materials for environmental or biomedical applications and their mechanical characterization, the characterization of nanocomposite oxide ceramic powders, studying the influence of the phase transformation on the final microstructure of the components, and of pure and substituted nanstructured hydroxyapatite powders, evaluating their thermal stability. These research activities have been carried out in collaboration with the INSA of Lyon, MIT and the University of Rome Tor Vergata.She is Author or co-Author, of about forty papers, including publications on international papers and international conferences proceedings.
