Federico Boscherini (1960) is a Full Professor of Physics at the Physics and Astronomy Department of the University of Bologna. Previously, he was a researcher at INFN -Frascati National Laboratories and a post doctoral associate at the University of Minnesota (USA).
He is an internationally recognized scientist in the field of synchrotron radiation and x-ray absorption spectroscopy. His primary scientific interest is the relation between local atomic structure and physical properties of advanced materials, with a focus on dopants and defects in semiconductors, nanostructures and nanoparticles, heterostructures and solid interfaces. His position in the scientific community is testified by his current role as Chairman of beamtime allocation panel 04 of ESRF, as editor of the new Volume I on X-ray Absorption Fine Structure of the International Tables of Crystallography published by the International Union of Crystrallography (due 2017), membership of various review and funding panels, publication of scientific papers, book chapters and books.
