1983:laurea Chimica Industriale Università degli studi Torino 110/110lode
1984-86:Grant on Drug design at CNR Chimica fine e secondaria Roma
1986-2006:CNR researcher at ISM and before ICMAT Rome. After stages at Oxford University and Marseille-Luminy on Scanning Probe Microscopy under high vacuum(STMUHV), his main activity was focused on STM-UHV studies on depositions of organic and inorganic films on semiconductor for optolectronics.
2007-2020:at ISMAC (now SCITEC)-Milano,he is working with Scanning Probe Microscopies on the study of thin film organic and polymeric films for optoelectronics and sensors.
His main interest is focused on Scanning probe microscopies(AFM,Kelvin,conductiveAFM)for studies of thin polymeric films for optoelectronic applications from morphological and local electronic point of view.He is interested in new deposition techniques besides spin coating, such as microcontact printing. He is collaborating with CNR synchrotron radiation group in Trieste for XRD structural film characterization.
