Since my undergraduate studies, I have considered the research on light-matter interaction as one of the most fascinating areas in modern physics. Within my postdoctoral experience, I had the exceptional opportunity to work at the forefront of two pioneering research fields, namely the study of the optical properties of metallic and semiconductor nanostructures using ultrafast nonlinear spectroscopy, and the development of advanced label-free multiphoton microscopy techniques for cell imaging. I have developed several algorithms for unsupervised data/image analysis/factorisation (for the analysis of complex datasets, including hyperspectral images and multidimensional data), as well as classification analysis. I am currently developing a lab-on chip biosensor based on photonic crystal cavities for early diagnostics of infectious diseases.

I was born in Colleferro, Italy, in 1979. I received my diploma degree in Physics from the University of Rome "La Sapienza" in 2003, and my PhD in Physics in 2007. I moved to Cardiff University in 2006 as Research Associate. I am currently a Rising Star Fellow
