Research interests

My interests are focused on new materials, their fascinating structures leading to new physical properties and applications. I’m experienced in the development and application of X-ray based analytical methods in the emerging fields of chemistry, biology, physics and microtechnology. My research is focalized on the study of strain and defect mobility in materials and / or systems such as thin films, coatings, interfaces and their dynamics and MEMS, especially for medical and space and applications.
