2004-Master degree in Food Science and Technology at the University of Milan, Italy. Vote110/110.
Researcher with fellowship and grant since 2005 and fixed-term researcher since 2014 at CNR-ISMAC, NMR laboratory in Milan
since 2018-permanent researcher at CNR-ISMAC lab. NMR in Milan and from 2019 she continues her research activity at CNR-SCITEC in Milan.
Her current research activities is related to the metabolomic analysis of food matrices, plant extracts and biofluids by using high resolution NMR spectroscopy also combined with chemometrics. The main aims are quality, authenticity, geographical origin and ageing assessment, frauds detection as well as the characterization of biomolecules useful for the nutraceutical application.
