Bachelor’s degree in Clinical Engineering at the University of Rome “La Sapienza” in 2012 with graduation thesis: “Design and development of a wireless device for capturing movement signals” under the supervision of prof. Domenico Caputo.

Master’s degree in Biomedical Engineering at the University of Rome “La Sapienza” in 2015.

Master graduation assignment: “Microstructuring of sapphire using laser irradiation and selective etching in hydrofluoric acid and potassium hydroxide” at University of Twente in the research chairs Mesoscale Chemical Systems (TNW) and Applied Laser Technology (CTW) under the supervision of R. Pohl, R.M. Tiggelaar, J.G.E. Gardeniers, G.R.B.E. Römer.


Optimized two-step hybrid laser and etching procedure, including:

- development and validation of (ultra) short pulsed processing strategies, methods, for 3D high resolution (on micro & nano-scale) processing of sapphire

- development and validation of etchants and etching procedures to chemically etch the laser-induced modifications in sapphire (obtained after the first step).
