I am Alessandro, physicist trained in biophysics and biology. My track record will tell you that my research is quite eclectic as I have published work across various disciplines, spanning information theory, sensor technologies, molecular biology and cell biology. I love to tinker with technology, develop new algorithms and software and I am best known for these aspects of my work. However, the molecular mechanisms of disease (neurodegeneration, malaria and cancer) have been always at the focus of my biophysical developments. The passion for science and technology can be even more rewarding when addressing problems which solution can have high societal impact. Cancer biology is my passion since 2010, a field where I believe I can make an impact. Since a few years, I lead a team of scientists dedicated to transdisciplinary research aimed to enable a live single cell systems biology of cellular decisions and to apply these tools for a better understanding of carcinogenesis.
