Biography

Carlo Ricciardi was born in 1975. In 2000 he graduated in Physics at University of Torino (110/110 cum laude) and in 2004 he got the Ph.D. in Physics at Politecnico di Torino. In 2002, during the European Materials Society Spring Meeting, he received the “Young Scientist Award”. In the period 2004-2007 he worked at Politecnico di Torino as: - Post-doc for developing the activity “Semiconductor film growth and silicon infiltration in ordered structures” (2004) - Lagrange fellow (Fondazione I.S.I.) for developing the activity “Development of SiC-based biosensors” in collaboration with Olivetti I-JET (2005) - Senior researcher of the National Centre of Excellence LATEMAR (LAboratory of Technologies Electrobiochemical Miniaturized for Analysis and Research) (2006). - Visiting Scientist at the Center of Integrated Nanomechanical Systems (COINS) of University of California, Berkeley, in developing a collaboration about “Unraveling Surface Stress Effects in Cantilever Based Detection” (2007). - Researcher (2007) From 2014 he is Associate Professor at Politecnico di Torino, where he holds the class of “Micro and Nano Technology applied to Biomedicine, Environment and Energy”. C. Ricciardi is author of more than 50 papers on international peer-reviewed journals with impact factor (H-index 13), referee of important journals dealing with Material Science and Sensor Technology, and member of the Editorial Board of "Journal of Biosensors and Bioelectronics" and "Journal of Advances in Biosensors and Bioelectronics". He is tutor for several Master, Ph.D. and post-doc students. C. Ricciardi was/is involved in many national and international projects with companies, R&D centres and public institutions. He was national PI of a IREE-NSF project with University of California, Berkeley (2007) and national coordinator of a PRIN 2007. Currently he’s PI for Politecnico di Torino of an EDA project and coordinator of a project at Molecular Foundry.
