I am currently a doctoral research fellow in the Advanced Materials group (P.I. V. Palermo) at CNR-ISOF and a PhD student in “Physics and Nanosciences” at University of Modena and Reggio Emilia.
My main research activity is devoted to investigating charge transport in graphene-related material (GRM) network systems. I am focused in understanding the role of structure “disorder” in the transport of charges. To pursuit this goal, I directly fabricate the GRM networks by low-cost, solution-based deposition techniques and I exploit a multi-tool approach which involves chemical analysis (XPS), microscopic imaging (AFM, SEM, visible-light microscope), structural characterization (XRD) and electrical measurements of the samples.
I am involved in the characterization of GRMs materials and GRMs composites for some of the group activities in the Graphene Flagship project.
Indeed, I am fully authorised user of the institute’s x-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS) facility.
I am also active in dissemination of group research work to high-school students and lab visitors (companies, other researchers). At university, I tutored the undergraduate lab classes of physics (“Laboratorio di Fisica I”, a.y. 2018/2019 - UniMoRe).
I hold a B.Sc. in "Physics" from University of Bologna (Italy), a M.Sc. in "Physics" from University of Ferrara (Italy) and a M.Sc. in "Nanoscience" from University of Paris-Saclay (France).
