PROFILE

Graduated in Physics in 1983; Specializzazione in Scienza dei Polimeri in 1985; PhD degree in Industrial Chemistry in 1989. Full Professor in Materials Science and Technology at Politecnico di Milano. Coordinator of FuNMat (Organic Functional and Nanostructured Materials); coordinator of the PhD Course in Materials Engineering (Politecnico of Milano); member of the Scientific Committee of SoLINano laboratory at Politecnico di Milano.

Member of the International Advisory Board of the International Congress on Synthetic Metals (ICSM); Member of the Editorial Board of Journal of Raman Spectroscopy (Wiley).

Team leader in many competitive research projects (PRIN, FIRB, CARIPLO) and of research projects in collaboration with several Companies.

She is author of about 260 papers published on peer reviewed International Journals; H-index (Scopus) = 32.  

 

Main research interests in the field of

  • Science of Organic Functional Materials and Polymers (Conducting Polymers, Organic Semiconductors, Photochromic Organic Materials)
  • Nanostructured carbon materials (amorphous carbon, nanostructured graphites, carbon nanotubes, polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) and carbon nanoribbons, linear carbon chains)
  • Vibrational dynamics and spectroscopy of semi-crystalline and amorphous polymers (phonon dispersion relations, conformational defects, chain orientation, intermolecular interactions)
  • Vibrational intensities and electro-optical parameters (Charge distribution from Infrared Intensity; local Raman parameters from Raman Intensities)
