I graduated in Physics at the University of Parma in 1996.
In October 1997 I am appointed as research fellow at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (ETHZ) in Zurich, CH, and in the same lab I start my PhD work on CdTe thin film solar cells. After my PhD thesis, from February 2002, I worked as post-doc at ETHZ on alternative buffer layers for CIGS thin film solar cells.
In April 2004 I am appointed as assistant professor at the University of Verona, working on absorption and fluorescence spectroscopy, atomic force microscopy and on chalcogenide thin film solar cells.
In December 2013 I got the qualification for Associate Professorship in Experimental Physics and Applied Physics and from December 2014 I am appointed as associate professor at the University of Verona.
I have been
invited for several talks and papers, I have been member of the
scientific committee for the European Photovoltaic Solar Energy
Conference in 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014 and 2015 and I have
been organizer of the E-MRS Spring Meeting “Thin Film Chalcogenide
Solar Cells” Symposium in 2010, in 2012 and in 2014.
I am author of more than 80 international publications and of 5
