My research is intended to contribute to the elucidation of the physiological and molecular processes involved in the biofilm formation of acidophilic leaching bacteria with emphasis in their cell-cell communication mechanisms.
In SysMetEx, our role is to understand biofilm formation at a microscopical and OMICS levels, in order to optimize it.
Institutions: University of Milano-Bicocca
I am a PostDoc working on yeast metabolomics. During my PhD I studied the interplay between metabolism, cell cycle and signalling, mainly focusing on the Snf1/AMPK pathway. I am currently interested in studying metabolic rewiring caused by different nutrients, generating high-throughput data suitable for modelling.

Post-doctoral research associate working in Sheffield in the SUMO consortium.
I`m interested to investigate the Influence of the accumulation of reduction equivalents on solvent production
I am a post-doctoral research associate working in Sheffield in the SUMO consortium. My research focuses on transcriptional regulation in E. coli, with particular emaphasis on the transcriptomic analysis of steady-state chemostat cultures using both microarray and qRT-PCR approaches.
Previous experience, especially that gained during my PhD, involved work on Salmonella physiology and lag phase growth, focusing particularly on gene-expression and transcriptional regulation. Other techniques used
I have a permanent position at the department of microbiology at the TU-München. As a microbiologist I am interested in the regulation of central metabolism in prokaryotic organisms with different types of energy metabolism such as Clostridia, Bacilli and acetic acid bacteria. Furthermore I worked as a software developer for several years in a bioinformatics company and I am very interested in bioinformatics and handling of large amounts of data.
Tools: gel-based and gel-free proteomics, 2-D Gel Electrophoresis, bacterial chemostat culture, Mutant and Strain Construction, qRT-PCR, molecular biological techniques (RNA/DNA techniques, Chromatography
Professor in biotechnology at the Dept. Chemistry, Biotechnology and Food Science. I am heading "Laboratory of microbial gene technology and food microbiology" that consists of approximately 20 members (staff members, technicians,and students). During the last 20 years my research has been focused on lactica acid bacteria with a focus on bacteriocins of lactic acid bacteria.These studies have included purification and chemical and genetic characterization of such peptides followed by biosynthesis
