Associated Professor in Chemistry of Fermentation and Industrial Microbiology at the University of Milano-Bicocca
Principal Investigator and manager of MySushi project. General coordinator of the project and PI of biotechnological processes. Main research fields are development in applied microbiology and biotechnology, by tailoring recombinant microbial strains, mainly yeasts, for the production of heterologous proteins, fine and bulk chemicals, biofuels, nutraceutics. Metabolic engineering, flow cytometry assays, screening are the approaches used to design strains with the desired features, including robustness against stress.
