Alessandro De Giacomo

Dr Alessandro De Giacomo is a staff research professor of the Chemistry Department of the University of Bari in Italy and an associate researcher of the Institute of Inorganic Methodologies and Plasmas of the National Council of the Researches (IMIP-CNR). He has been carrying out fundamental studies on laser induced plasmas in different applications, spacing from material science to analytical chemistry, which include Plasma Assisted Pulsed Laser Deposition, Laser Spectroscopy, Nanoparticles and carbon nanostructures synthesis by pulsed laser ablation in liquid, and Laser Induced Breakdown Spectroscopy for over sixteen years. At the present he is the head of the laser-matter interaction and laser plasmas joint laboratories of University of Bari and IMIP-CNR, whose activities focus on the production of metal nanoparticles for application in biological sciences and for the development of diagnostic tools for space exploration, cultural heritage and geological applications. In addition to this research activity and the academic work, Dr Alessandro De Giacomo is an active member of scientific committees of international conferences and a member of editorial boards of international journals, as well as a reviewer for several funding agencies in Europe.
