Anna Tagliaferri obtained her bachelor’s degree in Biomolecular Sciences and Technology at the University of Trento and her master’s degree in Industrial Biotechnology at the University of Padova. During her internships she worked in the field of pharma development, looking for a molecule to induce autophagy in neurons of people affected by Parkinson's disease to block the progress of the disease. She also worked in collaboration with Eurac Research in the computational field, performing statistical analysis on chromatography data from plasma of people affected by arrhythmogenic cardiomyopathy, looking for biomarkers of the disease.
She is currently a PhD student in the Food Engineering and Biotechnology program and carries out her research in the "Sensing Technologies Lab". Her current research interests focuses on Foodborne bacteria detection through the employment of Field Effect Transistors.
