Start date: 01.07.2020.
Marina was born in Correggio, Italy, in 1995. Guided by the interest in the observation of natural systems’ working principles, she chose to study at the Department of Life Sciences of the University of Modena and Reggio Emilia (Italy). There, she obtained her Bachelor degree in Biological Sciences (2017) and her Master’s degree in Industrial Biotechnology (2020). During her studies, one of her crucial experiences was spending two months at the Laboratory of Organic Electronics of Linköping University (Sweden) through the Erasmus+ programme. There, and during her Master’s thesis internship, she approached to the Organic Bio-Electronics field. She dedicated herself to investigating biosensors based on organic electrochemical transistors (OECTs) for wound-status monitoring medical devices.
Marina will perform her PhD at the Centre Microélectronique de Provence, a joint research center of MINES Saint-Etienne/ARMINES located in Gardanne (France), under the supervision of Ass. Professor Esma Ismailova.
Her research project will investigate methodologies for manufacturing and integrating organic sensors on wearables for human health monitoring. She will develop amperometric and OECT-based electronic devices for multimodal electrophysiological and biochemical biosensing.
