About me

I am an Italian and Swedish physicist with a master's degree in nanoscience. During my undergraduate and graduate studies at Lund University I approached the nanoscale thanks to a theoretical preparation in solid state physics and the enrolment in courses and projects linked to a few different fields of research, mainly surface science, material science and nanoelectronics. With my doctoral studies at KTH I aim to gain knowledge in the field of X-ray optics, and develop imaging tools for the study of the nanoscale wherever mainstream microscopy fails to provide results.

I have been elected chair to the SCI PhD student council and plan to use this opportunity to improve study, work and research conditions for fellow doctorands.
