I joined Aston University in August 2018 awarded with the 50th Anniversary Prize Fellowship that provides two years funding for a Research Fellow, with academic excellence being the primary criterion. During my PhD, I focused on the study of real time cellular bioenergetics and metabolic phenotyping of endothelial and trophoblasts cells exposed to conditions that resemble preeclamptic phenotype. Preeclampsia is a life-threatening disease that affect 1 in 12 of all pregnancies worldwide and is considered the most enigmatic hypertensive pregnancy-specific disorder, contributing to over 76,000 maternal and 500,000 infant deaths annually. As part of the Aston Medical School, I will work in concert with a team of postdoctoral fellows in order to investigate the role of cellular bioenergetics and metabolism linked to gasotransmitters in maternal vascular disorders.
My research is focused on understanding the role of cellular bioenergetics and mitochondrial metabolism in physiological and pathological conditions, in order to identify potential metabolic targets for pharmacological intervention.
