Hi! I am Liliana,

I come from Italy (Sicily) where I did my ndergraduate degree in Physics (Palermo, Sicily). After that, I completed a two years Master's degree in Biophysics, spending one year in Italy and the second one in France (Grenoble). Currently, I am doing a PhD in Biomedical Imaging at the University of Oxford with a Radcliffe Scholarship. My interest is to study and understand biological principles looking at cellular and molecular levels using Microscopy Imaging techniques (e.g. Atomic Force Microscopy, Super resolution fluorescence microscopy).
