Teresa Gatti holds a master degree in Chemistry from the University of Bologna, Italy (2008) and a Ph.D. in Materials Engineering from Politecnico di Milano, Italy (2014). After postdoctoral activities at the Department of Chemical Sciences of the University of Padova (Italy), since 2019 she is a Junior Research Group Leader at the Center for Materials Research of the Justus Liebig University Giessen (Germany). Since January 2022, she is also an affiliated Senior Researcher at the E3 Centre of Excellence.
She is recipient of the ERC Starting Grant 2021 project JANUS BI. In this project, she will pioneer a method for the synthesis of Janus 2D materials working completely in the liquid phase, by exploiting the liquid-phase exfoliation of layered materials and concepts deriving from asymmetric organic synthesis. The highly asymmetric nanomaterials will be employed for light-energy conversion applications such as photovoltaics and photocatalysis.
Teresa Gatti is also Principal Investigator and WP leader in the H2020 FET-Proactive project LIGHT-CAP. This project targets the realization of photo-capacitors and photo-batteries where the active species are low-dimensional materials (0D nanocrystals and 2D materials).
Dr. Gatti´s research interests cover the production, processing and application in optoelectronic devices of different emerging semiconducting materials, with special attention to species based on non-critical elements and featuring low-environmental impact.
Prof. Vincenzo Giannini’s scientific interests rely on theoretical light-matter interactions theoretical linear and nonlinear Plasmonics, Nanophotonics, and Metamaterials. He graduated in Physics from the University of Pisa. Subsequently moved to Spain for a Ph.D. program in Madrid at the Spanish research council (CSIC). The story followed with a postdoc in Amsterdam and a Marie Curie fellowship at the Imperial College London. In June 2014, He started his group at the Imperial College London in the Condensed Matter Theory section, followed by an offer in Spain at the CSIC and finally here at TII.
Andriy Gusak holds a specialist Degree in Physics from the Moscow State University (USSR, 1976). He was a post-graduate student in the Insitute of Metallurgy (Moscow, Academy of Sciences of the USSR 1978-1982) and got his PhD degree (Candidate of Sciences, Solid State Physics) from the Institute of Metal Physics (Ukrainian Academy of Sciences, 1983). Topic of PhD thesis – theory of diffusion in bimetallic layers. He has got his habilitation (Doctor of Sciences, Solid State physics) from Kharkiv University (Ukraine, 1992). (Topic of D.Sc.
