MAIN CAREER ACHIEVEMENTS

Since I started my independent research career (2005), the main international recognitions of my research outcomes were the Fellowship of the Royal Society of Chemistry (UK, 2016), the admission to the Global Young Academy (2012), the Marie Curie International Outgoing Fellowship in 2011 in the framework of the 7FP of the European Commission (first CNR permanent staff awarded with such award), and the appointment as full professor and chair in Experimental Physics at Luleå University of Technology (LTU) in 2014, when I was 40. Based on my achievements, I was invited as Visiting Professor (Senior International Scientist program) from the Chinese Academy of Science (CAS), Beijing, China and as Visiting Consultant at Universidad de La Habana, Cuba. As further recognition from the peers, I am regularly attending as invited/keynote speaker and symposium organizer at the most important Conferences in the field, I am in the board of prestigious international Journals, and I am acting as reviewer for top-tier Journals, Scientific Institutions and Funding Agencies, including the European Research Council. My TEPV Project submitted to the ERC Consolidator call 2015 got A (fully meets the ERC's excellence criterion and is recommended for funding if sufficient funds are available), received funds from the Knut and Alice Wallenberg Foundation, the Kempe Foundation, the ÅFORSK Foundation and the Swedish Foundations’ Consolidator Fellowship 2016 (five awardees in Sweden). Since December 2018 I am full professor of Industrial Engineering (SSD ING/IND 22) at Ca' Foscari University of Venice.
