Alessandro Paghi

Short Bio

Alessandro Paghi received his M.Sc. and Ph.D. cum laude in Electronic and Information Engineering from the University of Pisa in 2018 and 2022, respectively. Until November 2022, he was a postdoctoral researcher at the Information Engineering Department of the University of Pisa. During his academic carrer at the University he was focused on the development nano and micro -structured materials with tunable electrical, optical, and mechanical properties with applications in the fields of energy storage, power electronics, and sensing. Currently, he is a postdoctoral researcher at the Superconducting Quantum Electronics Lab (SQEL) at the Nanoscience Department of the Italian National Research Council (CNR, Pisa) focusing on the engineering of the electrostatic field-effect in all-metallic or metallic-semiconductive-metallic superconducting devices. His main research interests focused on the development of micro and nano -structured materials, devices, and systems for unconventional DC-to-GHz electronics and UV–VIS–NIR photonics.
