I am an experienced researcher with solid academic background in Applied Physics. My academic experience and industrial collaborations include multidisciplinary research and development on gas sensors and sensor system integration for indoor and outdoor air quality, cultural heritage materials, environmental sciences, and sustainable development applications. Moreover, I have experience on measurement and characterization of wide band-gap X-gamma ray semiconductor detectors for space, high-energy physics, and medical applications.
I got my scientific habilitation (Docent qualification) in Applied Physics with specialization in Applied Sensor Science at Linköping University, in 2016.
I was awarded my PhD in Physics (2009) and MSc degree in Physics (2005) at the University of Catania, Italy.
Before moving to Linköping in 2012, I worked for three years as a post-doctoral researcher at the Polytechnic of Milan, Como Campus, Italy, at the Department of Electronics, Information and Bioengineering.
I am co-founder of the start-up DANSiC AB.
In 2019, I was awarded the national prize Åforsk Entreprenörstipendium.
