Dr. Tommaso Battisti

Research Associate



Tommaso graduated from the University of Bologna in 2014 with a BSc in Chemistry and Material Chemistry (110L/110) and in 2016 with an MSc in Photochemistry and Molecular Materials (110L/110). He was awarded 2 studentships and his MSc research project was developed during a 6-month visiting period at ISIS in Strasbourg under the supervision of prof. De Cola and Prof. Ceroni, investigating the self-assembly properties of chiral Pt complexes.

He obtained his PhD in Organic Supramolecular Chemistry at Cardiff University in 2021 working in the group of Prof. Davide Bonifazi. During this time, he had the opportunity to work within the multi-disciplinary ITN Marie Curie Programme PHOTOTRAIN. His academic interests focused mainly on the use of a wide range of photophysical and physical chemistry techniques to study the properties of dyes and functionalised materials for photocatalytic applications. Tommaso joined the Nanomedicine group at ICN2 in February 2021 as a postdoctoral researcher funded by the EU Graphene Flagship project working on the development of bio-conjugated graphene oxide materials for biomedical applications.
