He graduated in Chemistry (110/110 cum laude) in 2008 and he got PhD in Chemical Synthesis and Applied Enzymatics in 2012 at the University of Bari. He worked as postdoc at the Institute of Crystallography (CNR) and at Center for Biomolecular Science (Nottingham University). Since 2018, he is staff researcher at the CNR Institute of Crystallography (CNR). Structural biology/chemistry represent his main interest along with the development of materials for crystallization/immobilization of proteins. He is expert in X-ray based techniques to investigate the structure of biological macromolecules (X-ray diffraction, XAS, and SAXS), protein expression/purification, and protein crystallization. He is involved in research project related to structural studies/inhibitor development of proteins involved in inflammatory response (COXs), proteolysis (MMPs and ubiquitin), coagulation (thrombin), metal homeostasis (ATOX1 and MNK1), and methyltransferases (NSDs).
