Università degli Studi di Trento (C3A)

I come from Sant’Ambrogio di Valpolicella, in the province of Verona. I completed my bachelor's degree at the University of Verona. My bachelor's thesis is titled "Grapevine-mold Plasmopara viticola infection (downy mildew) elicits the expression of allergenic PR-proteins". For my thesis, I have conducted a research project concerning an allergology case report.

I obtained my Master's degree at the University of Verona, too. My thesis is titled "Strategies for the extraction and analysis of hormones from different vegetable matrices". To achieve the objectives of the thesis, I learned and applied various techniques (such as HPLC, DAD, and ESI-MS) to develop methods for the enrichment and quantification of plant hormones.

After the Master's degree, I worked for two years in Gruppo Italiano Vini S.p.a. where I conduced an Intern to Quality Control Office and after them, I worked as Data analyst for Quality Control.

Now, I’m working on a project titled “Understanding of grapevine communication mediated by volatile organic compounds for the resistance against downy mildew”, with Michele Perazzolli, in collaboration with Laimburg Research Center.

PhD project: Understanding of grapevine communication mediated by volatile organic compounds for the resistance against downy mildew.

Department and supervisor : University of Trento, C3A, Prof. Michele Perazzolli.
