I studied Electronic Engineering at the University of Pisa, where I got my Ph.D. in Information Engineering in 2012 investigating the physics of light-activated electrochemical etching of Silicon. From 2012 to 2014, I was a Postdoctoral Research at the University of Pisa, where I investigated the electrochemistry of Silicon in hydrofluoric electrolytes and exploited it for microstructuring complex optical microsystems. I'm currently working as a Postdoctoral Research in the Prof. Alberto Diaspro’s group– Nanoscopy Department of the Istituto Italiano di Tecnologia.
My main research activities focus on the development of original micro and nanofabrication technologies, with applications in optoelectronics, photonics, sensors and imaging. Relevant examples of my research in these fields include the use of laser-matter interactions for microoptics fabrication and silicon electrochemical etching for optofluidics and sensing.
