Scientific research

I am Associate Professor at the Physics Dept. of the University of Milano.

My research activity is focused on the characterization of physical properties of interfaces at the nanometre scale using scanning probe techniques based on Atomic Force Microscopy.

I am the scientific coordinator of the AFM lab of the Molecular Beam and Nanocrystalline Materials Laboratory (LGM), and of the Interdisciplinary Centre for Nanostructured Materials and Interfaces (CIMaINa) of the University of Milano. The AFM lab was settled in 1999 with my contribution; since then, my research activity has developed along two parallel tracks, closely interwoven: the development and implementation of AFM-based techniques and protocols, and their application to the investigation of nanoscale systems.

More details about my research activity and the AFM lab can be found on CIMaINa’s website.
