The site for a new edition of the Winter Conference PIEZO2021: Piezoelectrics for End Users XI was decided:
University of Sassari, Sardinia, Italy.
Tradition, history, archeology and gastronomy will be offered by the organizer of PIEZO2021, Dr.Sebastiano Garroni and his colleagues at the group INMATE2 lab to the attendees to this Conference from industry and academy.
PIEZO2021will be dedicated to advances in manufacturing, characterization and applications of electroactive, particularly piezoelectric materials and devices.
|Sebastiano Garroni is a research scientist with nearly 10 years research experience in materials for energy storage, nanostructured materials for heterogeneous catalysis and novel lead-free piezoceramics. He obtained the Chemistry Degree (cum laude) on 2007 from the University of Sassari and he conducted his European PhD in Materials Science at the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona financed by an ITN Marie Curie Network Project titled COSY. After receiving the European PhD in 2011, he joined the physical chemistry group at the University of Sassari as post doc fellowship. In November 2012, He was contracted as Assistant Professor at Department of Chemistry and Pharmacy of the University of Sassari. He joined ICCRAM-UBU research centre (Burgos-Spain) in 2016 as researcher within the European project Nanopiezoeletrics financed by the Marie Sklodowska-Curie Individual Fellowship (IF) action (GA 707954). Since November 2018, he is Assistant Professor (Physical Chemistry) of the University of Sassari. So far, he has published more than 90 articles with around 1000 citations (h-index = 17) and 1 international patent (PCT 2013WO-IT00179). He participated in more than 30 national and international conferences, with 18 oral contributions (4 invited - 1 plenary). Among the financed project: MSCA-IF-2015 grant (172.000 €), MSCA - RISE (702.000 €) and an Under40- Legge7 (70.000 €) Regional project as Scientific Coordinator.|
