Dr. Stefano Carli has devoted his PhD investigations (2003-2005) to the development of new photochromic diarylethens functionalized Ruthenium dyads. From 2009 to 2016 Dr. Carli’s research activity was oriented on Dye Sensitized Solar Cells, Perovskite Solar Cells, as well as on new catalysts for light-induced water splitting. Currently Dr. Carli is a postdoctoral researcher at the Italian Institute of Technology and his research is focused on the development of new smart materials for neural sensing and stimulation - intracortical and epicortical - in humans and animal models.
