Silvio received his MSc degree in organic chemistry from the University of Pisa, Italy in 2011. A few months later he moved to NYC to join Prof. John’s lab at the City College of New York to pursue a Ph.D. . During this time, he worked on two different projects: one aimed at unraveling the complexity between chronic inflammation and tumor formation by utilizing Drosophila melanogaster as a model organism in collaboration with Dr. Govind (CCNY); as for the second project, he took advantage of molecular rotors (i.e., fluorescent compounds whose fluorescence is affected by intramolecular motion restriction) to investigate the self-assembly of low molecular-weight gelators. Currently, he is a postdoctoral research associate at CUNY-ASRC in Uljin lab where he is collaborating with Prof. Hyungsik Lim (Hunter College) to study the dynamic self-assembly of small peptides via second-harmonic imaging microscopy.
