Giulia Folpini was born in Milan in 1988. She received her Bachelor’s degree in Physics in 2010, and her Master’s degree in Physics in 2013 from Università di Milano – Bicocca with a thesis project in collaboration with the CELIA institute in Bordeaux. For her PhD she worked on multidimensional THz spectroscopy under the supervision of Prof. Thomas Elsaesser at the Max Born Insitut in Berlin, studying a wide range of systems from semiconductor nanostructures to organic crystals to hydrated biomolecules. She received her PhD from Humboldt Universitaet zu Berlin in December 2017. In 2018 she continued her work at the MBI focusing on spectroscopy in the IR and Far-IR range, before joining Annamaria Petrozza’s group at IIT in September 2018, where she works on optical and IR spectroscopy of organic perovskites.
Giulia is currently working toward a better understanding of chargeg transport and exciton diffusion in 2-dimensional and multidimansional organic perovskites, by means of time resolved photoluminescence spectroscopy and other ultrafast spectroscopic techniques in the visible and THz spectral range.
