Speaker Biography (Francesco Bonaccorso)
Dr Francesco Bonaccorso gained a PhD from the Department of Physics, University of Messina in Italy after working at the Italian National Research Council in Messina, the Engineering Department of Cambridge University (UK) and the Department of Physics and Astronomy of Vanderbilt University (USA). In June 2009 he was awarded a Royal Society Newton International Fellowship at the Engineering Department of Cambridge University, and elected to a Research Fellowship at Hughes Hall, Cambridge. He is currently Honorary Research Convenor at Hughes Hall and research associate for the graphene-CA pilot at the nanomaterials spectroscopy group (NMS) in the Department of Engineering, Cambridge University. His research interests encompass solution processing of carbon nanomaterials (such as graphene, nanotubes and nanodiamonds), their spectroscopic characterization, incorporation into polymer composites and application in solar cells, light emitting devices, ultrafast lasers, smart windows and touch-screens.
