    My research interests are mainly focused on the topics of protein fibrillation, nanoparticles-proteins interactions, and protein and peptide self-assembly. In my research activity I have used different techniques, such as ThT assays, Circular Dichroism (CD), fluorescence based techniques, Small-angle X-ray scattering (SAXS), and isothermal titration calorimetry (ITC).

    Alpha-synuclein oligomers (aSOs) are believed to play a major role in PD pathology. aSOs come in different sizes and shapes and also different toxic mechanisms have been described. In order to gain more insight in PD pathology, the main goal of my project is to identify an aSO binding partner.
