I was born in Monopoli (BA) in 1991.In 2007 I won a medal and a certificate for being ranked among the top ten in the regional chemistry games organized by the Italian Chemical Society (SCI). In July 2010 I graduated as an industrial chemist and in November of the same year I joined IIT as a technician of the Nanochemistry laboratory.In 2017-2018 I also worked at the IIT@UniLe Center for Biomolecular Nanotechnologies in Arnesano (LE). Since 2019 I am a senior technician of the Nanochemistry Laboratory directed by Liberato Manna.

My main skills are:

  • Synthesis of nano-structured materials and their characterization by transmission electron microscopy (TEM) and X-ray diffraction (XRD) to fulfil the requests of our collaborators;
  • Assembly and testing of the Schlenk lines;
  • Monitoring and maintenance of the glove boxes;
  • Preparation of organometallic precursor solutions;
  • Management of the chemistry laboratory in all its facets (organization of extraordinary maintenance, space management, etc.);
  • Maintenance of lab instruments (analytical balances, centrifuges, UV-Vis Spectrophotometers, etc.).

Since September 2019 I became the workers' safety officer (RLS) for all the employees at IIT.
