Experimental physicist with a solid background in nuclear instrumentation, development of state‑of‑the‑art ionizing radiation detectors via luminescence phenomena and Monte Carlo assisted particle‑tracking tools. Proven ability to transfer knowledge and connect broad areas of scientific research going from material science, lasers & optics to emerging nanotechnologies.


The scientific focus of my research is centered on the physics of multi‑excitonic photon emission processes in semiconductor nanocrystals and wide band gap dielectric materials together with energy storage and energy transfer mechanisms in inorganic‑organic composites. 

I am currently investigating the efficiency of biexcitonic emission in 2D semiconductors as a potential solution for ultrafast radiation detectors and the role of self-trapped-excitons as a memory mechanism in inorganic crystals.
