Born in 1981, he is PhD. in Plasma Physics, at the University of Milano-Bicocca, with a thesis work in the field of plasma biodecontamination. From 2007 he has been working as a researcher in the field of applied plasma physics: first in Milano (Plasma Prometeo Laboratories) and Hamburg (Tigres Gmbh) while for the last three years as a grantholder in Ispra (Italy) at the European Commission Joint Research Centre  NanoBiotechnologyLaboratories dealing with, Plasma Medicine, Nanotechnology and Bio Interface Engineering applied in the field of life science. Principal job activities were plasma reactors design, plasma processes characterization and surface modification of materials at thenanometer scale for biomedical applications. From May 2012 is working as junior postdoc at center for nanosciece and technology in Milano.
