Short bio

Michele completed his master degree at the University of Parma (Italy) in 2011 and received his Ph.D. degree in Physics from the University of Basel (Switzerland) in 2015.

During his doctorate in the group of Prof. Frithjof Nolting at the Paul Scherrer Institut in Switzerland, he focused on studying the effect of electric fields and ultrashort laser pulses in magnetic materials and multiferroics using soft x-ray spectroscopies both at synchrotrons (Swiss Light Source (CH), Diamond (UK), BESSY (DE)) and at the free electron laser FLASH in Hamburg.

Michele joined Andrea's group in February 2016 on a fellowship of the Swiss National Science Foundation. He aims to investigate light-induced effects in organic superconductors both using ultrafast x-rays techniques and ultrafast optical spectroscopies under pressure.
