address: Piazza Leonardo da Vinci 32, 20133 Milano, Italy
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 biophotonic devices for optical manipulation of single cells without physical contact and to their fabrication by femtosecond laser irradiation. I am co-author of 26 regular articles published in peer-reviewed international journals.
