Lorenzo Maserati

Affiliated Researcher
Advanced Materials for Optoelectronics
Research center

Lorenzo Maserati holds a Bachelor (2007) and a Master (2009) degrees in Physics Engineering from Politecnico di Milano (Italy). He developed his Master thesis on graphene for STM applications in the Physics Department of UC Berkeley (USA) under the supervision of Prof. M. Crommie. He obtained his PhD in Nanoscience (2014) from the University of Genoa (Italy) with a thesis on "Colloidal nanocrystal films for optoelectronic applications", working in the Nanochemistry Department of IIT under the supervision of Prof. L. Manna. In 2015 he moved as a Postdoc to the Helms group, in the Organic and Macromolecular Facility of the Molecular Foundry (Lawrence Berkeley National Lab, USA) where he developed hybrid materials (MOF) for CO2 capture and microporous polymers (PIM) for flow batteries. In 2017 he joined the Nanofabrication Facility at the Molecular Foundry where he worked with Dr. A. Schwartzberg on the ultrafast spectroscopy of nanomaterials and strongly confined systems. Since 2018 he is Researcher at CNST in Milan in the printed and molecular electronic group where he develops new metal-organic chalcogenides hybrid quantum wells for a variety of optoelectronic applications. 

He is recipient of the Nanoinnovation' Got Talent award (Bracco Foundation, 2016) and of the Seal of Excellence (Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions, 2017)
