I have a MSc in Pharmacy from the University of Oriental Piedmont (Italy) obtained in 2018. Right after my graduation, I started working in the field of protein biochemistry, green chemistry and crystallography with two different companies (IXTAL srl, NOVAMONT spa). Since September 2020 I am a PhD student at the University of Bergen founded by Horizon2020 program under Marie Sklodowska-Curie grant agreement in the PoLiMeR consortium.
The focus of my PhD project is trying to remodel in an in-vitro system NAD biosynthetic, and degrading pathways using purified recombinant proteins, thereby reconstituting NAD metabolism in a simplified and controlled cyclic reaction. This NAD system, when established, will provide a sensitive tool able to quantify the impact of added enzymes on NAD homeostasis.
