Position: Researcher

I received my degree and PhD in Electronic Engineering at University of Pavia in 2003 and 2007 respectively. From 2007 to 2011 I carried out my research activity as a postdoc at the Quantum Electronics Lab, University of Pavia and, being member of the Virtual Institute for Nonlinear Optics, I spent few months at University of Insubria in Como and at Vilnius University in Vilnius (Lithuania). Since October 2012 I have a permanent position as a researcher at IFN in Milan
My scientific activity has been mainly devoted to the numerical and experimental study of radiation-matter interaction, both in guided-wave structures and in bulk materials. Currently my research interests are related to the development of new optofluidic Lab-on-chip for optical manipulation and 3D imaging of single cells and clusters without physical contact and to their fabrication by femtosecond laser irradiation followed by chemical etchingI am co-author of 44 regular articles published in peer-reviewed international journals. I participated in several research projects and I'm currently the coordinator of the H2020 PROCHIP project that aims at realizing a high-throughput super-resolution microscope in a microfluidic chip.
