I’m excited to collaborate with like-minded professionals to work towards solving pressing health and societal challenges.


Daniele is a Doctoral Research Fellow at the University of Oxford, working on bone metastasis. His research uses microfluidic technology to probe the diversity between cancer cells that drives disease progression, combining approaches from cell biology, engineering, and bioinformatics. Having graduated from Imperial College with a bachelor’s degree in biomedical engineering, he is currently on sabbatical from an MBBS Medicine and is an aspiring clinician-scientist.

Beyond academia, Daniele enjoys volunteering and community development work. In 2021, he received the St. Mary’s Hospital Association Outstanding Service Award for voluntary work, and in 2022, he received the Nautilus Prize from Green Templeton College for contributions to the college community.
