I am looking for new opportunities that foster my personal and professional growth, particularly those that allow me to delve deeper into the realms of Optics and Photonics and explore their diverse applications.

As a dynamic and motivated professional, I bring to the table a youthful spirit, insatiable curiosity, and a genuine passion for my work. I thrive in collaborative environments, where my enthusiasm merges seamlessly with a team-oriented approach. I am excited about the prospect of contributing to and learning from cutting-edge projects, always seeking to push the boundaries of what is possible in my field.

Master's Thesis Project
VIBRA LAB-Politecnico di Milano
in Milano, Milano, Lombardia, Italia

02/2023 - 10/2023


During my master's thesis at the VIBRA LAB of Politecnico di Milano, under the guidance of Professor Dario Polli, I was actively engaged in a project focused on advancing and optimizing a Broadband Coherent Anti-Stokes Raman Scattering (BCARS) setup.  I assumed a multifaceted role encompassing both hardware and software aspects of the system.  The primary objective of the thesis was to enhance the setup's performance by transforming it into a versatile multimodal platform capable of simultaneous acquisition of Second Harmonic and BCARS signals from the specimen under investigation. Another significant role I undertook involved acquiring hyperspectral data and conducting data analysis for microscopy and spectroscopy applications. This experience not only honed my technical skills but also highlighted my ability to innovate and adapt in a dynamic research environment, significantly contributing to the advancement of cutting-edge technology.
