I am a Medical Doctor with a specialization in Sports Medicine and a PhD in Exercise Physiology. I started my research Experience as Associate Researcher at the University of Milan. Now I am senior Researcher at the Institute of Molecular Bioimaging and Physiology . My research interests include exercise physiology and energetic metabolism with a particular focus on regulation and functional evaluation of skeletal muscle oxidative metabolism, in normal, extreme and pathological conditions. For the most part, research has focused, especially, on physiological adaptation to exercise in chronic hypoxia, physiological adaptation to exercise and limiting factors in heart transplant recipient, limiting factor of V’O2 kinetics during exercise transitions. I took part in several scientific campaigns at altitude.
