Previous appointments:
From 12/2009 to 05/2023 coordinator of the Center for Nano Science Technology @ POLIMI Istituto Italiano di Tecnologia. 1999-2011 Associate Professor in physics at Politecnico di Milano. 1994-1999 Assistant Professor at University of Sassari. 1992-94 Post Doc at ISM-C.N.R., Bologna1992

PHD in Chemical Physics. 1989-90 visiting scientist at University of Utah, SLC-UT, USA. 1987 Physics degree (laurea). GL has a background in the photo-physics of nanostructured and molecular materials. His research activity, reported in more than 350 publications, regards applications in energy, bio-photonics, neuroscience and medicine. In particular, the overarching goal of the research is to induce light sensitivity in living cells, tissue or organism by developing new light actuators. He is involved in the project for developing an artificial retina prosthesis. He is involved in two start-up companies.
