Eleonora Perego studied Physics at the University of Milano-Bicocca (Italy). She got a M. Sc. in Physics in 2015, after a period at the AMOLF institute in Amsterdam (the Netherlands) with a thesis titled "The role of mechanical forces in the robustness of C. elegans embryonic development". She joined for her PhD the "Cellular Biophysics" group of Prof. Dr. Sarah Koester (Göttingen, Germany), where she studied with fluorescence spectroscopy methods combined with microfluidic approaches protein-protein interactions. In 2020, Eleonora obtained her PhD in Biophysics at the Göttingen Graduate School for Neurosciences Biophysics and Molecular Biosciences (GGNB, Göttingen, Germany) under the program of the International Max Planck Research School "Physics of Biological and Complex Systems", with a thesis titled "Studying molecular interaction under flow with fluorescence fluctuation spectroscopy".
Since 2021, Eleonora is working at the Italian Institute of Technology in Genoa, Italy, in the Molecular Microscopy and Spectroscopy research line of Dr. G. Vicidomini as a post-doctoral researcher. Her research interests include the application of fluorescence spectroscopy methods, such as fluorescence fluctuation spectroscopy and fluorescence lifetime imaging, to biological questions, ranging from neuroscience to RNA biology.
