Junior Research Fellow of St John’s College in Cambridge and researcher at the University of Cambridge working in the field of superconducting spintronics. Completed a European Second Cycle Degree in Biomedical Engineering (February 2011) as the student graduating with the highest weighted average grade of the entire College of Engineering and defending a thesis on the optimization of hyperthermic tumour treatments using magnetic nanoparticles.
Received one of the three Fulbright Self-Placed Scholarships ($38,000) awarded for all disciplines in Italy during the academic year 2011-2012 to pursue a Professional Science Master’s Degree in Nanoscience at Arizona State University, which he completed in July 2012.
Joined the NanoDTC Ph.D. programme (one-year-long Master’s degree followed by three years of Ph.D. research activity) at the University of Cambridge in September 2012, where he was selected as recipient of the only Schiff Foundation Scholarship (£ 56,000) awarded in the same year.
Earned his Ph.D. degree at the University of Cambridge (September 2016) defending a thesis on “unconventional superconducting states at superconducting interfaces” and passing his Ph.D. viva exam without corrections.
Was the recipient of one of the five Junior Research Fellowships offered by St John’s College in the academic year 2016-2017 for doctoral students and early-career postdoctoral researchers of all disciplines.
Has been awarded several prizes for his research activity in the field of superconducting spintronics including the international IEEE Graduate Study Fellowship Award ($5,000) in 2015.
