Winton Programme for the Physics of Sustainability

Department of Physics


I received my undergraduate and MSc degrees from the University of Catania in Italy in 2008 and 2010. I also received additional undergraduate and MSc degrees from the Scuola Superiore of Catania (a school of excellence studies) in 2009 and 2011. I moved to Imperial College London where I got my PhD in 2014. From 2014 to 2018 I held a Research associate position in Cambridge. In August 2018 I became a Winton Advanced Research Fellow and I am now running a research group on optically accessible memristive devices at the University of Cambridge. In February 2020 I became Lecturer in Device Materials in the Materials Science and Metallurgy Department, Cambridge.


We develop the ultra-concentration of light trapped inside plasmonic nanocavities into an innovative fast methodology for studying real-time movement of individual atoms that underpins the new generation of memory nano-devices called resistive switching memories (RRAMs).
