Andrea Capasso

Research Fellow
2D Materials and Devices

Andrea joined the International Iberian Nanotechnology Laboratory (INL) as a Marie Curie Research Fellow at the Department of Quantum and Energy Materials. His research is focused on the development of processes for scalable production of graphene and two-dimensional crystals in view of their integration in advanced technologies, such as energy harvesting and optoelectronic devices.

Andrea holds an MSc in Electronic Engineering (University of Roma TRE, Italy) and a PhD in Nanotechnology (Queensland University of Technology, Australia). He formerly held research positions at the Queensland University of Technology in Australia, at ENEA and the Italian Institute of Technology in Italy, and at Yonsei University in Korea. His research activities have been centred on the production, analysis, and functionalization of carbon-based nanomaterials and two-dimensional crystals, fostering their application in optoelectronics and photovoltaics.

Andrea was awarded €200k in personal grants and cooperated in several international projects, such as the National and International Research Alliances Program funded by the Queensland Government, and the Graphene FET Flagship funded by the European Union. He recently promoted and participated in collaborative research projects between Italy and Korea, funded by the Italian Ministry of Foreign Affairs (Nanosciences and Advanced Materials 2016-2018, Biomedicine 2019-2021). He published 40 articles in international journals, 2 book chapters, and presented at 40 conferences over 4 continents.
