Research fellow at Alma Mater Studiorum-Università di Bologna since Jenuary 2016. From January 2013 to December 2015, she undertook her Ph.D program in Mechanical and Advanced Sciences of Engineering, defending the theses "Functional modification of materials and synthesis of nanostructures by non-equilibrium atmospheric pressure plasma processes". Her research activities mainly concern the design and optimization of cold atmospheric plasma assisted processes for the surface modification of materials, crosslinking of polymers, deposition of polymeric and nanocomposite coatings, synthesis of nanostructures in liquid environment, for industrial and biomedical applications. She is author of 24 scientific publications on international journals. She is co-founder of AlmaPlasma srl, spin-off company of UNIBO.
