After collaborations with Italian institutions and museums in the field of archaeometry and diagnostic of metallic artefacts, she moved to Switzerland. There she obtained a PhD in Science from the University of Neuchâtel in 2017, focusing on biotechnology applied to the development of eco-friendly conservation treatments for copper-based alloys. In 2018 she received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under the Marie Sklodowska-Curie Action. She is currently implementing her research project, related to the conservation of oil paintings on copper and iron substrates, at the Institute for the Study of Nanostructured Material (ISMN-CNR) in Rome (Italy).
