SCIENTIFIC LEADERSHIP PROFILE
MG scientific activity is focused on the development of innovative plasma technologies and their applications in industrially and socially relevant fields, unraveling the underlying fundamental aspects with the aim of understanding, controlling and optimising processes. MG main interests are medical applications of plasmas, with a particular focus on cancer treatment, odontostomatology and decontamination, and material processing, especially nanomaterial synthesis/modification (in gas, liquid or solid phase) and deposition of functional thin films (organic, inorganic, nanostructured). MG expertise is rooted in atmospheric pressure plasma engineering and physics (design and optimization of plasma systems and processes, plasma diagnostics), and complemented with the chemistry and biology background required to support research activities in the fields of plasma and medicine and material processing.
