She obtained her Master’s degree in Physics in 2004, at Sapienza University of Rome (SUR). Then, she graduated from the Specialization School in Medical Physics, at SUR (2004-2008). Finally, she obtained her PhD degree in Physics at the University of Roma Tre (2012-2016).

She acquired biomedical skills in the most common non-invasive Imaging techniques, in particular in X-ray imaging and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) techniques. During the specialization thesis she has also combined her materials science know-how with her biomedical know-how, developing an approach based on the direct writing (using an X-ray photon illumination) on a micrometric scale to create arrays of Josephson junctions for MEG SQUID devices.

In 2011 she has a Centro “E. Fermi” grant, aimed at studying the Spinal Cord by non- invasive imaging technique (X-ray phase contrast tomography and fMRI).

Since 2015 she has a fellowship @ CNR-NANOTEC for the European Project VOXEL

In 2015 she won “a young researcher project of the Italian Healthy Ministry” titled: Multimodal experimental and theoretical approach for the study of the Spinal Cord in healthy and diseased subjects.
