Research focus

My research focuses on describing and characterizing the cellular signaling mechanisms involved in the host-microbiota interaction in the intestinal environment, in health and disease conditions. By exploiting in vitro gastrointestinal models, to simulate specific intestinal conditions, and cellular models of the intestinal epithelium, my aim is to combine multidisciplinary approaches to study conditions impacting energy, microbiome and epithelial homeostasis and nutrient availability.
