Light-based innovation for the biosciences

I am a biophysicist with over ten years of experience as a research microscopist, first using scanning probe methods, then fluorescence fluctuations and superresolution techniques. This expertise builds on top of training in solid-state physics, molecular electronics, and semiconducting thin films matured working in Italy, Switzerland the US, and now Germany. I have been leading for the last two years a team researching fundamental molecular mechanisms modulating G protein-coupled Receptors (GPCR) signaling and the underlying pharmacology in Berlin, supported by grants from the German Research Foundation (DFG), and I am since 2022 a Reader in the School of Physics and Astronomy in St. Andrews.

Research areas:

  • Single-molecule microscopy
  • Biomedical research
  • G protein-coupled Receptors
  • Pharmacology
