Sept 01, 2023 Welcome to Nicola
I am an electronic engineer originally from Italy. I earned my PhD from the University of Cagliari, Italy, and subsequently, I worked at the Italian Institute of Technology in Genoa, Italy. More recently, I worked as a visiting researcher at Columbia University in New York City, NY, USA, and at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory in Berkeley, CA, USA, as part of the Marie Sklodowska-Curie RISE Action "SONAR H2020." Currently, I am the recipient of the Marie Sklodowska-Curie Global Fellowship "2DTWIST," which involves collaboration between the Functional Nanosystems group at the Italian Institute of Technology and the Transport at Nanoscale Interfaces Laboratory at the Swiss Federal Laboratories for Materials Science and Technology (EMPA).
My research focuses on investigating low-dimensional materials, encompassing their characterization and their application in the fields of electronics and photonics. Under the "2DTWIST" project, my goal is to develop a technique that enables active, dynamic, and automated control of Moiré geometry in 2D heterostructures through electrostatic actuation.
