My research is centered on the physico-chemical implications for the biological functionality of DNA. Mainly I have developed and applied innovative computational methods to understand how global flexibility is built in the basis of local conformational dynamics of complex macromolecules such as DNA or RNA. I have collected more than 600 citations and my h-index is 11.
