Studies in Cultural Heritage Science at University of Florence begun in 2000. In 2006 started working on projects related to Color Science and Digital Imaging. At Institute of Applied Physics in Florence focused on non-invasive analysis of paintings with Fiber Optic Reflectance Spectroscopy and Hyper-Spectral Reflectance Imaging.
In 2010 started PhD project at Imaging & Media Lab in Basel, designing optical setup for digital restoration of photographs and motion-picture films. In 2012 intern at Image Permanence Institute in Rochester-NY, developing specific illumination and imaging techniques to effectively highlight decay phenomena of film (filmcare.org). During 2013-2014 teacher assistant at University of Basel (“Historical Photography and Darkroom“), and periodically collaborated with UZH for research project DIASTOR.
In 2014 founded 8mmezzo, association for recovery and preservation of home movies in Tuscany.
For two years (2014-2016) postdoc fellow in Imaging Science at National Gallery of Art in Washington DC, designing spectral imaging methodologies for works of art.
