National scientific qualification in:
- Applied physics (02 / D1) Associate Professor Level
- Biochemistry (05 / E1) Associate Professor Level
Protein structure to function relationship:
a. conformational stability studies of proteins by equilibrium unfolding measurements;
b. kinetic measurements of the folding/unfolding process of metal containing proteins;
c. structural and functional behaviour of monomeric and oligomeric enzymes under high pressure condition.
A. She has a very good knowledge of fluorescence dynamics (both in phase and time-resolved techniques), circular dichroism and rotational dynamics measurements of proteins in solution.
She is author of about 45 scientific publications (IF 115, Hindex=14) in the fields of optical spectroscopy of biological molecules, fluorescence instrumentation and biomaterials.
