General introduction

PhD in analytical chemistry, during the past I worked on the development of new materials applicable in industrial separation processes and the synthesis and characterization of heterogeneous catalysts applicable in biotechnological and chemical industry. I have specific competences in the development of analytical methods applicable to various range of chemical compounds (biopharmaceuticals, membranes, polymers, nanoparticles).


I currently work on the investigation and optimization of biopharmaceuticals separation by means of HPLC technique. In particular, my research aims to improve the hydrophobic interaction chromatography (HIC-HPLC) technique investigating its application in industry. This project is in collaboration with ThermoFisher scientific.
