Damiano Genovese obtained his PhD in Chemistry at University of Bologna in 2011, in the field of fluorescent labels and sensors based on dye-doped nanoparticles, under the supervision of prof. Luca Prodi. As a student, he received two grants to fund his research stays in Ecole Normale Superieure (France) and in Harvard University (USA). In 2013 he was awarded the ENI prize for his “Debut in Research”.
Soon after he was awarded the Alexander von Humboldt Fellowship for a research project to be performed in Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (Germany) in the research group of prof. Luisa De Cola.
He is now in a tenure-track for associate professorship (RTD-b) in Chemistry at the Department of Chemistry “G. Ciamician” in Università di Bologna.
His research spans interdisciplinary fields such as colloids physics and surface chemistry, self-assembling systems, and nanostructured photoactive materials for optoelectronics, sensing, and nanomedicine.
