About

Enrico Mugnaioli attended Degree and PhD studies at the Department of Earth Sciences of the University of Siena, Italy. During PhD, he worked on Electron Crystallography and Mineralogy of asbestos. From October 2007 to February 2014 he worked at the Electron Microscopy Center of Johannes Gutenberg University in Mainz, Germany. He collaborated with several public and private research institutions providing crystallographic and TEM expertise. He was one of the first developer and user of the Automated Diffraction Tomography (ADT), for the acquisition of 3D electron diffraction data from single nanocrystals. From 2013 to 2017 he was PI of the Italian national project FIR2013 'Exploring the nanoworld', coordinating two research units located in Siena and Pisa. Since April 2017 he is collaborating with CNI@NEST, Pisa. He is involved in the development and application of electron crystallographic methods for the structure characterization of nanocrystalline and beam-sensitive materials, with special focus on nanoparticles, porous materials, pharmaceutics and macromolecules.
