"I have a Bachelor´s Degree in Biotechnology (University of Parma, Italy) and my Bachelor´s Thesis is about expression and purification of human CRBP (cellular retinol-binding protein), using PCR, SDS-Page and fluorometric assay of retinol binding. It has been carried out under the supervision of Prof. Rodolfo Berni inside the Biochemistry Department. I have a Master´s Degree in Biomolecular Chemistry (University of Parma, Italy) and my Master´s Thesis is about Molecular Dynamics on Mr4511 (bacterial LOV protein), carried out under the supervision of Prof. Eugenia Polverini and Prof. Aba Losi inside the Physics Department. This work revolves around the building of a stable model of Mr4511 (never structurally characterized before) and the simulation of oxygen diffusion in the binding site of the variant C71S. During the work other two variants have been proposed and studied in silico, showing an increment in oxygen diffusion and persistence in the binding site. During my studies I acquired technical and theoretical skills in bio-engineering, advanced organic chemistry, computational chemistry and analytical tools."
