I am Professor of Applied Physics at KTH and former Swedish Research Council Special Research Fellow (Rådsforskare) for the discipline “Semiconductor physics, electronics, electrical engineering and photonics” at the Department of Applied Physics at KTH, where I head the Nonlinear and Quantum Photonics Group in the unit for Quantum and Bio Photonics.
Nonlinear Optics, Waveguide devices, Ferroelectric Material Science, All-Optical Signal Processing, Quantum Optics
My Alma Mater is the University ‘La Sapienza’ in Rome (Italy), where I graduated with a MSc in Electronic Engineering in 1997. I got a PhD in Electronic Engineering in Italy with joint with M. Fejer's group at Stanford University (1998) and a PhD in Physics from the University of Nice-Sophia Antipolis (France) in 2001. Before joining KTH, I was Senior Research Fellow at the Optoelectronics Research Centre in Southampton, UK (2001-2007).
At KTH I lead the Nonlinear Quantum Photonics group, whose research activity spans theory, technology and experiments on domain switching and optical interactions in ferroelectric materials, photonic crystals and integrated all-optical devices, with a focus on quantum optical and biophotonics applications and the fundamental physics of nonlinear interactions.
