I was born in Como (Italy) on July, 31st, 1984. In 2003, I received the Diploma as industrial expert in Computer Science, 100/100 with honours at I.T.I.S. Magistri Cumacini. In 2009, I graduated in Physics Engineering at Politecnico di Milano, with the mark of 110/110 cum laude.
In February 2013, I obtained the Ph.D. in Physics cum laude at Politecnico di Milano (Thesis: “Ge-based Photodiodes for Spin-Optoelectronics”, L-NESS Center – Politecnico di Milano). I have been a visiting PhD student for six months at the Institute of Physics ASCR, v. v. i. (FZU), Academy of Sciences of the Czech Republic, working in the framework of AntiFerromagnetic Semiconductors (mainly on CuMnAs).
Since October 2016, I am a Researcher (RTDA). My research activity is devoted to the study of magnetic heterostructures and spintronic devices based on semiconductors, antiferromagnets and functional oxides and their combination. During the years, I worked on Germanium Telluride to proof the existence of the newly proposed class of FerroElectric Rashba SemiConductors (FERSCs).
I’m expert in the growth of thin films and heterostructures by means of Molecular Beam Epitaxy and Magnetron Sputtering as well as in characterization by means of electron’s spectroscopies and diffraction techniques. I am skilled in the fabrication of devices by optical lithography and ion beam milling and in the advanced electric and magnetic characterization of spintronic devices.
I participated in many international conferences with contributed talks, invited and keynote speeches, and papers. I published 42 papers and my H-index is 11 (Scopus).
I’m lecturer of the course Fisica sperimentale (Mechanics, Thermodynamics) for Management Engineering.
