He obtained a Ph.D. in Molecular Biophysics at Scuola Normale Superiore in collaboration with the Italian Institute of Technology at the NEST institute in Pisa and successfully followed a second-level professional master programme in Advanced Biostatistics at University of Padova.

Former Junior Specialist at University of California-Irvine (USA, in the laboratory of Prof. Eric O. Potma), he worked as a research fellow first at the Italian Institute of Technology in Pisa and then at the European Laboratory for Non-linear Spectroscopy in Florence. After that, he worked as a researcher at National Institute of Optics of the Italian National Research Council. His research work focuses on non-linear optical microscopy of biological samples with different modalities.

Specially, he is experienced with building and operating cutting-edge microscopy setups, in particular for coherent Raman imaging, light-sheet microscopy and non-linear microscopy. In addition, he has expertise in scientific data analysis and in digital analysis of complex image dataset with custom-made low-level image processing software.
