Research Interest

My research interests are focused on the design of porous organic and metallorganic materials, merging supramolecular and macrocyclic chemistry, leading to new highly guest-responsive materials. 
I have previously worked in the synthesis and electrochemical characterization of platinum nanostructures, and in the the electrochemical analysis of printed silver electrodes for biochemical analytes detection.
