Region: Lombardy


Position/Role

She is full professor at University of Brescia and now head of the SENSOR laboratory (University of Brescia) http://sensor.unibs.it

The laboratory focuses on the research in the field of Information and Communication Technology (ICT), nanomedicine, nutrition and safety. One of the most advanced research areas of the laboratory is precisely the one dealing with almost mono-dimensional oxide nanostructures: 1-D crystalline nanostructures are emerging today as the basis for a new generation of electronics and nanometer-scale optoelectronic devices with superior performance.

Professional career

After achieving her degree in Experimental Physics in 1996 at the University of Pisa, she has been a Ph.D. student in Materials for Engineering at the University of Brescia. She was awarded with her Ph.D. degree in 2000. From 1999 to 2001 she was employed as a technologist at INFM (National Institute of Physics of Matter). Since 2001 she has been a researcher in Physics of Matter at the University of Brescia, where she later became associate professor and then full professor of Experimental Physics of Matter.

Scientific results

EC is a researcher specialist in the growth of metal oxides, particularly nanowires, thin films and the measurement of their electronic, functional and structural properties. EC original work made an impact on the research community. She was the first to report gas sensing properties of conductometric devices based on semiconducting metal oxide nanowires. That paper, cited more than 1100 times, opened up a completely new field which is still one of the most dynamic research area.

EC is a very active member of the research community serving in various Editorial Boards of international journals. She serves as a reviewer for various international journals and she is part of the technical program committee of conferences in chemical sensing.

She was organizer of symposia within the MRS society, within E-MRS society meetings. She was communication chair of the 11th International Meeting on Chemical Sensors (Brescia in July 2006). She is Member of the Technical Program Committee of several conferences such as 6th IEEE SENSORS 2007, 7th IEEE SENSORS 2008, Eurosensors 2009 to 2019.

She was one of the five co-Chair of the 2013 Fall Meeting of the Materials Research Society

She is a voting member of the steering committee of EUROSENSORS conference.           

She was promoter of 15 Ph.D., and supervisor of 30 undergraduate students.

Editorial work and publications

She has more than 500 communications, 130 invited communications at conferences and she has given more than 65 invited communications including 6 plenary talk. EC has more than 350 peer reviewed paper, h-index 51 (Web of Science), 53 (scopus), 61 (goggle scholar).

Awards and prizes

In September 2005 she won the prize for the best presentation at the EUROSENSORS XIX conference in Barcelona. The following year, she won the same prize at the EUROSENSORS XX conference in Gothenburg. In 2010 she won the first place in Science as Art as part of the MRS Spring Meeting in San Francisco. Two years later she won the Eurosensors fellow 2012, a leading conference for the sensor community.
