Liberato Manna - Top Italian Scientist in Material & Nano Sciences
Liberato Manna received his Ph.D. in Chemistry in 2001 from the University of Bari (Italy) and worked at UC Berkeley (USA) as a visiting Student and subsequently at the Lawrence Berkeley Lab (USA) as a postdoctoral fellow until 2003. He was then scientist at the National Nanotechnology Lab in Lecce (Italy) and he moved to the Istituto Italiano di Tecnologia (IIT), Genova (Italy) in 2009 as director of the Nanochemistry Department. Since 2010, he has also been part-time professor at TU Delft (The Netherlands). Currently, he is also deputy director of IIT for the Materials and Nanotechnology programs at IIT. His research interests include the synthesis and assembly of colloidal nanocrystals, the study (including modeling) of structural, chemical and surface transformations in nanoscale materials, and their applications in energy, photonics, and electronics. He currently teaches theoretical chemistry and electronic structure of solids at the University of Genova.
