I’ve been at the Rizzoli laboratory since 2008. First I worked on an electron microscope to image synapses in different specimens (worm, mouse, fruit fly, frogs…). After that I started to work with the first commercial STED system from Leica. Around 2011/2012 we planned the first experiments for the NanoSIMS in which I was involved.

From 2013-2016 I worked in department administration. From 2016 to 2019 I was on parental leave. Our NanoSIMS 50L (Cameca) was delivered at the end of 2017 and I have been one of the operators of the NanoSIMS since my return. I also manage the infrastructure and maintenance of all equipment required to run NanoSIMS. This also includes routine checks, maintenance and repairs of the NanoSIMS itself.
