She obtained her Master’s degree in Physics in 2004, at Sapienza University of Rome (SUR). While attending the Specialization School in Medical Physics, at SUR (2004-2008), she developed a method for manipulating the properties of cuprate high-Tc superconductors by X-ray illumination. This method should allow for the “direct writing” of arrays of Josephson junctions for multiple SQUID detectors, paving the way for the development of clinical applications such as MEG. From 2009 to 2011 she worked as a postdoc at the Institute for Photonics and Nanotechnologies, Rome, in the framework of the AXIS EU project. The main goal of the project was the development of an advanced X-ray source, relying on a field emitting cold cathode based on carbon-nanotubes. Since 2011 she has a Centro "E. Fermi" grant, aimed at studying the Spinal Cord by fMRI.
