Academic interests

In the framework of conservation science, my research focuses on nanotechnologies for restoration, deacidification methods of ligno-cellulosic materials and design of organic-inorganic nanocomposites applied to cultural heritage.


I received my B.Sc, and M.Sc. in Conservation Science from University of Florence. As a visiting PhD candidate in 2014–2015, I spent almost two years at our Saving Oseberg laboratory in Bygdøy, where I investigated the mechanisms leading to the deterioration of alum-treated wood. In 2017 I received my PhD in Chemical Sciences from the Center for Colloid and Surface Science (CSGI)/University of Florence. My PhD thesis deals with the design and application of nanotechnologies for the restoration of alum-treated archaeological wood.
