During my Bachelor Degree in Biology at the University of Rome “Sapienza”, I gained knowledge on several scientific fields and a global view of biological processes and their analysis. Subsequently, two years of studying for a Master Degree in Bioinformatics at the University of Rome “Tor Vergata” taught me about structural bioinformatics, focusing my attention on ligand-protein interactions and the analysis of the behaviour of amino acids in the protein structural space. Moreover, I acquired skills in informatics, computer programming and database management.

Driven by an interest to extend my knowledge in the field of proteomics and a curiosity towards the most recent challenges in bioinformatics, I recently joined the CompOmics group for a multidisciplinary Ph.D project, undertaken as part of the UGent Multidisciplinary Research Project (MRP) on Bioinformatics: ‘Nucleotides to Networks’, supervised by Prof. Martens and co-supervised by Prof. De Baets.
