I am a scientist invested in the development of soft materials that can respond to external stimuli and adapt to their operation conditions in smart nanotechnologies, with a particular interest in renewable energy conversion in photovoltaics. I lead the Smart Energy Materials Group at the Adolphe Merkle Institute as a Swiss National Science Foundation PRIMA Fellow and Assistant Professor at the University of Fribourg in Switzerland. My research relies on a multidisciplinary approach at the interface of chemistry, physics, material science, and engineering to develop functional materials and devices. I operate within an international collaborative network of researchers across the globe, and I am dedicated to science outreach, policy, and diplomacy, supporting young scientists through activities and partnerships globally.
