About
Born in Verona in 1989, he completed the Bachelor's degree in Electronics Engineering, followed by a Master's degree in Nuclear Engineering, both at Politecnico di Milano. From September 2013 to May 2014, he developed his MSc thesis project supervised by Prof. Andrea C. Ferrari at the University of Cambridge within the Cambridge Graphene Centre, working on graphene saturable absorbers. He completed his PhD cum laude, under the supervision of Dr. Mario Caironi at the Center for Nano Science and Technology of the Istituto Italiano di Tecnologia (CNST@PoliMi). His research activities focused on the investigation of the electronic transport properties of exotic materials for organic bioelectronics, the realization of printed edible electronic devices and cell-sensing platforms based on carbon nanotubes. After his PhD, he spent two years and a half at Tufts University (USA) working with Prof. Fiorenzo Omenetto, where he developed the first demonstration of microwave devices tuned by an organic electrochemical transistors, as well as on mass-scalable deposition techniques for silk-based functional inks. From July 2020, he is a Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions Global fellow, working in the Salleo Group (Stanford University, USA), where he is studying the optoelectronic properties of organic semiconductors and mixed ion-electron conductors, with a focus on the development of water-gated organic phototransistors and printed neuromorphic devices.
