DAVIDE BLASI

RTD A

Davide Blasi graduated with honours in “Material Science and Technology” at the Università degli Studi di Bari “Aldo Moro” in 2013. In 2014, he won a PhD grant in a Marie Skłodowska-Curie Initial Training network, at the Materials Science Institute of Barcelona. He joined to the group of Prof. Jaume Veciana, working on the synthesis of luminescent polychlorotiphenyl methyl (PTM) radicals and their optical properties when dispersed into rigid hosts like organic nanoparticles and polymeric films. He received his PhD in ‘‘Materials Science’’ with honours in 2017, with a thesis titled “molecular and supramolecular strategies for highly luminescent trityl radicals and their sensing applications”. After his PhD he worked as process engineer for Procter and Gamble and as scientific marketing officer for a small cosmetic company. In February 2019, he obtained a post-doc position at the Center for Colloid and Surface Science (CSGI) joining to the group of Prof. Luisa Torsi. His activity mainly focused on the synthesis and characterization of self-assembled monolayers (SAMs) for ultra-sensitive bio-sensors based on electrolyte-gated organic field effect transistors (EGOFETs). From December 2020, Davide is assistant professor in organic chemistry at the Università degli Studi di Bari “Aldo Moro”. His current research activity is aimed to the valorisation of lignocellulosic biomasses through mechanochemical approaches.
