I obtained the master degree in Physics at the University of Rome “La Sapienza” in 2000, and I defended my Ph.D. thesis in Physics in June 2004. The themes of both Master Degree and Ph.D. concerned nanofabrication and characterization High Electron Mobility Transistors. Currently I am head of the Plasmon Tecnologies Unit at IIT and of the Clean Room Facilities.

I am also Principal Investigator of The Neuro-Plasmonics group supported by the ERC ( Ideas Consolidator Grant ).

Actual Position: Senior Resercher Italian Institute of Technology, Genova,

Nanostructures Department.

Research Field: Nanofabrications and Plasmonics.
