Silvia Caponi
















I work in bio-photonics: applying light-based technologies to the fascinating word of life sciences (more info).

My recent  scientific interests include: 

-microscopy and spectroscopy approaches to address the bio-mechanics at the single cell and tissue level

-development of imaging and spectroscopy devices for biomedical and environmental applications
