Prof. P. Davide Cozzoli received his MSc degree in Chemistry in 1999 and his PhD in Chemical Sciences in 2004 from the University of Bari, Italy. His PhD project was partially carried out at the University of Hamburg, Germany. From 2004 to 2005 he worked as post-doctoral fellow at the University of Bari. In 2005 he joined the National Nanotechnology Laboratory (NNL) of CNR InstituteNanoscience, Lecce, Italy. As CNR Associate Researcher, he ed the Nanochemistrygroup of NNL from 2009 to 2014. Since 2015 he is Associate Professor of Experimental Matter Physics at the University of Salento, Lecce, Italy, and senior research associate at the CNR Institute of Nanotechnology, Lecce, Italy (Nanochemistry Facility). Currently, he serves as Associate Editor of the peer-reviewed journals Science of Advanced Materials, Journal of Nanomaterials, International Journal of Photoenergy, and Frontiers in Materials, and as editorial board member of Science China Materials, AIMS Materials Science, Peer J. Materials Science, General Chemistry, Materials and PLOS ONE.So far, he has published over 120scientific contributions, edited one book (a second book is under preparation) and two conference proceedings. His scientific work has overall attracted over 7800 citations (H-index=42).He is regularly invited to deliver lectures at international conferences and seminars at research institutes/universities. His research is focused on the development of advanced colloidal nanocrystal architectureswith controlled structural and topological features for applications in (photo)catalysis, photovoltaics, optoelectronics and biomedicine.
