Academic discipline: FIS/03 Physics of Matter

Short Bio

Dr. Lorenzo Maserati earned his BSc (2007) and MSc (2009) in Physics Engineering at Politecnico di Milano with a Master's thesis developed at UC Berkeley, USA. He then pursued a PhD in Nanoscience (2014) at the Istituto Italiano di Tecnologia (IIT), Genoa. There, he worked on microelectronic devices and the opto-electronic properties of colloidal nanocrystals, focusing on the design and nano-fabrication of transistors and photodetectors. As a Postdoc, he worked on metal-organic framework (MOF) syntheses for CO2/N2 separation at the Organic Chemistry Facility of the Molecular Foundry (LBNL), USA. He then joined the Molecular Foundry Nanofabrication Facility to investigate ultrafast exciton phenomena linked to a novel class of 2D-like metal-organic chalcogenides materials. In 2018, he joined the CNST-IIT in Milano as a Researcher with a sponsorship obtained through the Marie-Curie Seal of Excellence (2018). Since 2022, he is a Junior Assistant Professor at DIFA where he investigates optoelectronic properties of metal-halide perovskites and metal-organic chalcogenides. In 2022 he was awarded the ESA Discovery Programme Grant by the European Space Agency.
