Research:

Actually, PhD student in Earth Science, curriculum Environment and Cultural Heritage, at Sapienza University of Rome with the project “Historical metals conservation: sacrificial alloys and high‑performing systems for cleaning and protection”. She obtained a bachelor’s degree in “Technology for the Conservation and Restoration of Cultural Heritage” in 2018 and a master’s degree in “Science and Technology for the Conservation of Cultural Heritage” in 2020, both at Sapienza University of Rome. She completed three internships at the Institute for the Study of Nanostructured Materials of the CNR of Rome. During the academic career, she acquired scientific and multidisciplinary skills focused on the study and the conservation of cultural artifacts, in particular on the application of diagnostic techniques, both portable (XRF, colorimetry, UV fluorescence, XR radiography) and non-portable (SEM, XRD, FTIR). Concerning the materials, she deeply studied metals (bronze and silver), ceramics, pigments and protective polymeric coatings.
