My main interest along my scientific career has been the synthesis and magnetic characterization of magnetic nanoparticles (MNPs) for applications in biomedicine. Specifically, I have explored the relationships between the structural and magnetic parameters of MNPs and their power absorption efficiency, within the framework of magnetic hyperthermia (MH) applications. I have been engaged in different experimental approaches on cell uptake of NPs, microscopic studies through FIB-SEM tomography to explore the nanoparticles intracellular distribution and the study of cell-nanoparticle interaction mechanism and cellular damage during hyperthermia experiments. I have recently started to study the synergy between NPMs and carbon-based materials to enhance the intrinsic production of reactive oxygen-nitrogen species (ROS/RNS) and explore their connections with different cell death pathways.
