Research

My research interests are centered around the development of (supra)molecular materials for smart nanotechnologies that can respond to various external stimuli and adapt to their operation conditions, with a particular interest in renewable energy conversion in photovoltaics. I rely on a multidisciplinary approach and international collaborations at the interface of chemistry, physics, material science, and engineering in the design, synthesis, and characterization of materials and devices.

Projects

Stimuli-Responsive Materials
(Supra)molecular materials responsive to electric charge or light

Materials that are responsive to physical stimuli, such as electric charge or light, are relevant for adaptable technologies. We are interested in the development of such stimuli-responsive (supra)molecular materials that preserve their functionality in the solid-state and enable advanced control in functional devices.

Layered Hybrid Materials
Layered materials feature unique opto(electro)ionic properties

Layered hybrid perovskite materials based on organic spacers templating hybrid perovskite slabs, which are stable under operating conditions of voltage bias and light, are of interest to various optoelectronic and optoionic devices. We develop layered hybrid perovskites with enhanced functionalities towards smart nanotechnologies.

Hybrid Photovoltaics
Operationally stable hybrid perovskites for renewable energy

Hybrid organic-inorganic perovskites have emerged as one of the most promising materials in thin-film photovoltaics, yet their limited stability under operating conditions hampers practical applications. We strive to address this challenge by relying on (supra)molecular strategies to control the function of perovskite materials and devices.
