Research Interests

Management of the microscopy facility; optic and electron microscopy-based methods; molecular technologies for biological systems; image processing and analysis softwares; cell differentiation and development in different model systems (particularly in beneficial plant-microbe interactions).

Short CV
  • (1990) Graduated in Biological Sciences at the University “Federico II” of Naples, Italy;
  • (1992-1997) PhD in “Molecular and Cellular Genetic” at the same University carried out at the Institute of Genetics and Biophysics ‘A. Buzzati-Traverso’ (IGB-ABT) in Naples;
  • (1998) post-doctoral training at the IGB-ABT on the project ‘Ammonium transport: strategic role in nitrogen efficiency’;  
  • (1999-2007) CNR scientist (temporary appointment) at the IGB-ABT of Naples on the project ‘Regulation of bacterial nitrogen metabolism’;
  • (2008) CNR permanent position at the IGB-ABT as Technologist, specialise in optic and electronic microscopy;
  • (2009) responsible of the Integrated Microscopy Facility at the IGB-ABT.
  • Advisor of pre-doctoral and PhD students. Organizer of training courses for beginners or experienced microscopy users in light and electron microscopy.
    Her studies have been published on different international scientific journals such as Molecular Microbiology, Molecular Plant-Microbe Interactions (MPMI) and Journal of Bacteriology. Three of her publications on MPMI obtained the cover page. Co-author of two review publications on Microbiology and Molecular Biology Review and International Review of Cytology.
    Her work contributed to unravel the molecular mechanism leading to the uncoupling between bacterial N-fixation and N-assimilation: a prerequisite for an efficient Rhizobium-legume symbiosis.
