Curriculum vitae

Born in Imola (BO) on 28/11/1972, graduated in Physics in 1995/96 with full votes.

After studying the main themes of modern theoretical physics during university, I became interested in modeling biophysical topics since my PhD in Physics (awarded in 2001). My main research interests are modeling of complex biological functions (Immune System, Genome, Nervous System) with approaches based on network theory and the study of the effects of electromagnetic fields (EMF) on cells, in particular the interaction of these fields with the cell membrane by ion channel (stochastic models), and the study of synergistic effects of EMF with cell defense mechanisms, such as Heat Shock Response (changes in the kinetics of cellular response). I deal with the theoretical study and the development of novel algorithms in the field of neural networks and "hybrid" expert systems for the exploratory analysis of data (time-series analysis, classification, feature extraction), for applications in the biomedical field techniques of signal analysis (classification of patterns of gene activity obtained experimentally through "Microarray Hybridization" technique, reconstruction of the network of gene-gene interaction starting from time series of gene expression obtained experimentally). Another of my research topics is the study of the electrical activity of cells using the patch clamp technique for biomedical applications (cell response to mechanical shock) or pure research (cell electrical activity and aging).

I worked on several national projects (various PRIN 2005-2007) and international (European REFLEX project, RAMP) on the study of electromagnetic fields and their effect on biological tissue, with numerous collaborations (Brown University, USA, Unilever UK, RZPD Heidelberg D University of Parma, Bologna University, Rizzoli Orthopaedic Institute, EU projects PROTHETS, T-CIA, GEHA, MARKAGE, Policlinico S. Orsola-Malpighi Hospital, National Institute of Health-Rome, Milan CNR-ITB) on the study of gene expression in relation to disease, aging or experimental treatments (including EMF). I am a member of INBB, the Interdepartmental Centre "L. Galvani "(CIG) for studies on biocomplexity (University of Bologna) and INFN, participating in the initiative for the study of interactions between low-dose ionizing radiations and cells (SHEILA and EXCALIBUR projects). In 2005 I won the prize "Bologna Start Cup", with a business project on the application of an interdisciplinary sensor of volatile substances ("electronic nose") in an industrial environment.

Since 2019 I am FUll Professor at the Department of Physics and Astronomy, University of Bologna.
