Research activity

My research is based on optical microscopy applied to the field of biophysics. In particular, I develop label-free polarization-based imaging techniques. The methodology is based on Mueller Matrix formalism, which allows to analyze all possible polarization interactions of light with a sample. I use this technique to study the conformation of chromatin-DNA in situ.
