February 2020: start of PhD Project at the Biological and Chemical Department of Aarhus University on the development of a system for the light-driven biocatalytic oxyfunctionalisation in continuously operated meso-scale flow bioreactors.
November 2019: Master Degree in Chemical Sciences at Universitá degli Studi di Napoli “Federico II” with a dissertation in biochemistry on the opportunity of developing and optimizing a nanoparticles production’s protocol suitable for PHAs and their characterization.
April-July 2019: Erasmus+ Trainee at Universität für Bodenkultur of Wien.
December 2016: Bachelor Degree in Chemistry Sciences at Universitá degli Studi di Napoli “Federico II” with a dissertation in biochemistry focused on the use of crude glycerol as a renewable source for bio-based materials production (PHA).
During her thesis Piera discovered the innovative power of Green Chemistry and such a first contact with this topic intrigued her so much that hers ambition is to deepen hers knowledge of biocatalysis and bioprocess.
Outside of the walls of the laboratory, Piera enjoys different activities, from visiting museums and discovering new cultures to read a good book with a cup of tea, from food tasting to drinking a cold beer with friends and colleagues.
