Advisory Board

The PhD program in Physics involves a series of mechanisms for consulting with institutions both inside the Polytechnic and outside our University.

As far as the relationship with the Degree programmes is concerned, the Board of the PhD in Physics includes among its members the academic advisors of the Master and Triennial Degree Programmes more closely related to the topics of the PhD Programme in Physics (MS Programme in Physics of Complex Systems, MS Programme in Nanotechnology for ICT and Bachelor Programme in Physical Engineering), which are consulted on issues related to the training and skills of students of such courses in access to the doctorate.

The Board also includes two researchers from the National Institute of Metrological Research (INRIM), a stakeholder of the Course that regularly supporting PhD grants in Physics.

An advisory board has also been appointed, which includes high-profile international scholars from prestigious research centres and universities, as well as from companies and research institutes that have been in the past or may be in the future interested in funding PhD grants in Physics, to host PhD students/students for research activities and to hire PhD students/students leaving for R&D jobs. The members of the Advisory Committee are:

  • Prof. Matthieu Roussey (University of Eastern Finland)
  • Prof. Felice Torrisi (Imperial College, London)
  • Professor Roberta Ramponi (Politecnico di Milano)
  • Prof. Matteo Rizzi (Universität zu Köln, Germany)
  • Dr. Massimo Rontani (CNR NANO Research Center S3, Modena)
  • Prof. Andrés Anabalòn Dupuy (Universidad Adolfo Ibanez, Chile)
  • Dr. Alexander Philipp Kalweit (physics coordinator ALICE-LHC, CERN)
  • Prof. Federico Ricci Tersenghi (University of Rome La Sapienza)
  • Eng. Antonio Trotta (Eni S.p.A.)

These scholars, who work on topics of the four macro-areas of the PhD in Physics (Experimental Physics of Matter, Theoretical Physics of Matter, Physics of Complex Systems, Physics of High Energies), have already had relations with our PhD programme in Physics as co-supervisors or thesis reviewers, or because they have hosted our PhD students in their research abroad, or because they have been Visiting Professors at the Polytechnic or because they have held courses of excellence for the Doctorate.
