About me

  • I am an interdisciplinary scientist with experience in organic electronic materials, organic bioelectronics, and materials chemistry. My research is driven by the need for materials and device designs that provide better performance (e.g., for sensing), with a particular focus on bioelectronic applications, and improve the long-term impact of modern technological products.

    I am a chemist as a background, with a M.Sc. in chemistry from Pavia University (Italy). As a young student interested in research, I worked with the groups of Luigi Casella (Pavia), Ebbe Nordlander (Lund) and Ivan Castillo (Mexico City) with a project focused on bioinorganic chemistry.

    In 2012 I moved to Linköping to do a PhD in "Biomolecular and Organic Electronics" under the supervision of Prof. Olle Inganäs. At the beginning of 2017, just after finishing my PhD, I moved to Australia where I had the chance to work with Prof. Damia Mawad group at the University of New South Wales (UNSW, Sydney) and with Prof. Gordon Wallace at the Intelligent Polymer Research Institute (University of Wollongong).

    Supporting yourself as a young researcher can be challenging. I was granted my first funding in 2018, and I joined Mawad Lab at UNSW under the " International Postdoc" grant from the Swedish Research Council in partnership with Herland Lab at KTH. In 2020, I moved back to Sweden and joined Herland Lab at KTH Royal Institute of Technology as a researcher. My quest to support my research endeavors continued, and from 2021 to 2023 I was Marie Curie Fellow with the project "Bioresorbable Organic Electronic Devices (BioResORGEL)".

    I am currently a Team leader at AIMES Center for the Advancement of Integrated Medical and Engineering Sciences at KI ( and Assistant Professor (WISE Fellow) at the Department of Materials and Environmental Chemistry (MMK) at Stockholm University (,
