I was born in Cormons (Italy) in 1982. From 2001 to 2006 I studied at the University of Pisa (Italy) while attending the prestigious excellence school Scuola Normale Superiore. I graduated in Physics in 2006. I received my PhD in Physics in March 2010 from Scuola Normale Superiore, under the supervision of Prof. Rosario Fazio, with a thesis on "Dynamical Instabilities in Quantum Many-Body Systems." Then, I worked as a postdoc for two years at the Institute of Quantum Optics and Quantum Information in Innsbruck (Austria) in the group of Prof. Peter Zoller where I studied photonic properties of nonlinear cavity arrays and mechanical resonators in the quantum regime. From February 2012 to March 2016 I worked as a postdoc at the NEST laboratory ("National Enterprise for nanoScience and nanoTechnology") in Pisa, in the group of Prof. Marco Polini. Since April 2016 I have continued my postdoc with Prof. Polini at the IIT ("Italian Institute of Technology") in Genova. In these last years, I have focused my research on optoelectronic and transport properties of graphene and other two-dimensional materials.
I have coauthored about 30 publications in peer-reviewed international journals including Science (1 paper), Nature Communications (1 paper) and Physical Review Letter (4 papers). According to ISI Web of Science, my h-index is 18 and my publications have been cited more than 800 times. Several publications result from collaborations with experimental groups in Cambridge, Manchester, Milan, and Pisa.
