- Greta Bergamaschi was born in Milano in 1983. She studied chemistry in Pavia, where in 2014 obtained her PhD degree, with a doctoral thesis titled “Anion recognition and sensing with urea-based receptors and azacryptands “. She spent research periods in Germany (Department of Chemistry, TUM, Munich) and Switzerland (EPFL, Lausanne and UZH, Zurich).From November 2016 she is a postdoctoral researcher at the Politecnico di Milano. She received the Fernando Pulidori Award 2013 (6th edition) conferred by The European Group of Thermodynamics of Metal Complex (ISMEC 2013) to a young researcher author of an original paper. Her research interests are focused on supramolecular chemistry and molecular recognition.
Andrea Pizzi is postdoctoral fellow at the Laboratory of Supramolecular BioNano materials (SupraBioNanoLab) in Politecnico di Milano. He obtained a MS in Industrial and Managerial Chemistry (2011) from the University of Milan and then he had an experience in a pharmaceutical industry in the quality assurance department. He obtained the PhD in Industrial Chemistry and Chemical Engineering in 2017 from Politecnico di Milano. During the PhD he worked on the European Research Council project “FOLDHALO – Folding with Halogen Bonding”. During the PhD he was visiting student at VTT- Technical Research centre of Finland, in Helsinki. His scientific interest deals with protein crystallography and the development of self-assembled biomaterials modified with halogen atoms.
- Isabel received her BS in chemistry (2009) and the MSc in Chemical Technology (2011) from the University of Coahuila, Mexico. She obtained the PhD in Sciences and Chemical Technologies in 2016 from University of Genova, Italy. In the past, she worked at the Department of Advanced Materials of the Research Center for Applied Chemistry in Coahuila, Mexico, where she conducted studies investigating of plasmon-enhanced photovoltaics applications. Her research interests include the synthesis and characterization of photoactive and fluorinated organic compounds and their nanoscale materials for biomedical and technological applications.
Giulia Neri obtained Masters Degree in Chemistry and Pharmaceutical Technologies in 2013, and the PhD in Chemical Sciences in 2017, both at the University of Messina working in the field of organic and material chemistry. In particular, her research interests was focused on the development of new nanobioteranostic drug-delivery systems based on the carbon nanomaterials. She has also been a visiting PhD at the National Physical Laboratory (London, UK), working on the development of peptide-based self-assembly systems for gene-delivery.
Presently, she is research fellow at Politecnico di Milano working on the development of new fluorinated polymers, in partnership with Solvay Group.
