Research summary

Cell decision-making is orchestrated by the complex interplay between intracellular dynamics and the extracellular environment. How do these components produce emergent phenotypes and affect cell decision-making? Can cell fate be directly engineered? Can mathematical models aid in the understanding the basis of living organism regulations and guide their re-engineering?

My multidisciplinary Systems and Synthetic Biology research group aims at answering these questions combining wet-lab experiments and computational research. The main aims are to:

i) get a quantitative understanding of the link between signalling pathway dynamics, cell-cycle and stem cell pluripotency. We combine tools from Systems and Synthetic Biology at population- ...

I am a computational biology scientist, with interdisciplinary experience in Synthetic Biology (control and modelling of synthetic gene regulatory networks) and Systems Biology (modelling and studying the functional role of signalling and cell-cycle dynamics in mammalian cells).

I received a Bachelor degree in Mathematics in the University of L'Aquila (Italy) in 2003, followed in 2007 by a Master degree in Mathematics and Informatics in the same University. In 2010 I received a Ph.D. degree in Automatic Engineering in the University of Naples "Federico II", Italy. My Ph.D. was focused on the mathematical modelling and analysis of synthetic ...
