Scientific Illustrations of Cell Biology


I was born and raised in the heart of Salento, in the south of Italy. After high school, in 2009 I moved to Ferrara to study Biotechnology and I obtained a Bachelor degree. Then I moved to Turin and in 2012 I got my Master degree in Molecular Biotechnology. From 2012 to 2018 I performed a PhD in Biomedical Sciences and Oncology at the Molecular Biotechnology Center of Turin. Today I’m a Post Doc at the University of Turin thanks to the financial support of AIRC, the Italian Association for Cancer research. I have a strong educational background and work experience in cell biology, biochemistry and molecular biology in vitro and in vivo systems. However, not only I love science, but also art. Therefore, during these years I developed a growing interest for scientific illustrations and I improved my abilities with design software tools, including Adobe Creative and CorelDRAW Graphics Suite. And parallel to my postdoctoral research I started to work as scientific illustrator, combining my scientific background and practical research experience with my creative thinking and artistic attitude.
I strongly believe in the potentiality of art to efficiently communicate scientific ideas, concepts, and data and would be very rewarding helping people to transmit their knowledge to the scientific community.
