About me

I am an Italian and Swedish physicist with a master's degree in nanoscience. During my studies at Lund University I approached the nanoscale with solid state theory and its applications. With my doctoral studies at KTH I have shifted my focus to X-ray optics. I put my skills as an experienced cleanroom user to use in the design and nanofabrication of Fresnel zone plates (diffractive optics). Then, together with my group, we implement these in novel setups for multi-beam difraction imaging, collaborating with the NanoMAX beamline staff (MAX IV) and the P06 group (PETRA III, DESY).

I have been the chairman of the SCI PhD student council throughout 2022 and have been re-elected for 2023. My goal is to have as wide of an impact as possible in improving both work and social conditions for fellow students.
