Short bio

Alice studied Physics Engineering at Politecnico di Milano and got her master degree in July 2013. During her master thesis activity she developed a broadband electronic bi-dimensional spectroscopy system in the near infrared. This device was used to investigate the presence of energy transfers in carbon nanotubes.

She joined our group in October 2013. Presently, she is working on the development of a tunable mid-infrared light source, which is capable of delivering 100-fs to few-ps pulses tailored to the specific needs of mode-selective phase control in complex oxides.
