About

Andrea Desii is a Researcher in the Smart Bio-Interfaces Research Line, who has worked on the study and development of new nanotechnology-based biomedical solutions for the last 12 years. A material scientist by formation, his research interests have ranged from the colloidal properties of oligopeptides to the electrochemistry of bio-interfaces. In the framework of SLaMM he develops new magnetic nanomaterials with improved hyperthemic properties and “smart” surface functionalizations.
