Camilla Coletti is the coordinator of the IIT Graphene Labs (, a transversal action that is developing within the European Fet-flagship initiative Graphene, which involves IIT researchers in different fields of activity, such as material production, optoelectronics and photonics, health and biomedical applications, energy generation and storage. Since April 2016 she is a tenure track researcher leading the research line 2D Materials Engineering ( She was hired by IIT in 2011 with the task to set-up from scratch laboratories and research on 2D materials obtained via chemical vapor deposition (CVD). From 2008 to 2011 she was an Alexander von Humboldt postdoctoral fellow at the Max Planck Institute for Solid State Research of Stuttgart (Germany).She received her PhD degree from the University of South Florida in 2007 and her MS degree from the University of Perugia in 2004 (with honors, both in Electrical Engineering). She is an internationally-recognized expert in the synthesis of highly-crystalline 2D materials via CVD and in the investigation of their electronic, chemical and structural properties via conventional surface science techniques. Her research is focused on: (i) synthesis and integration of scalable 2D materials for optoelectronics and photonics; (ii) engineering the interface and properties of 2D heterostructures. In her work she applies her background of surface scientist to impact science and technology of 2D materials. In IIT she has directly supervised 18 students and 16 postdoctoral fellows with a great attention in creating an international and gender fair environment. Since the beginning of her tenure track (April 2016) she has received funding for over 3.3 M€ from competitive grants and industrial contracts and published over 60 peer-reviewed publications. Overall, she is author of about 95 peer-reviewed publications, authored 4 book chapters, edited 1 book, filed several international patents (holds 3) and delivered more than 40 invited talks at international conferences.
