Ottavia Bettucci was born in Rome, Italy, in 1988. She received her Master's degree Chemistry with specialization in Organic Synthesis at University of Florence (Italy) in 2015. After a 6 month internship at Chalmers University of technology (Goteborg, Sweden), she officially started a PhD at University of Siena (Italy) in collaboration with CNR-ICCOM (Italian National Research Council-Institute of Chemistry of Organometallic Compounds). She worked in the field of emerging photovoltaic technologies and sustainable solar fuels in particular in the synthesis of innovative materials for these applications. She also worked in the field of perovskite solar cells when she was doing a visiting at POLYMAT, the Institute for Polymer Materials of the University of the Basque Country. After graduating from her PhD in 2018, she joined the Tissue Electronics Laboratory at the IIT Naples as Post-doctoral researcher in July 2019.
