Dr. Laura Caliò joined the MOM group in 2018. She graduated in Material Chemistry at University of Calabria (Italy) and completed her MSc in Organic Chemistry at University of Bologna (Italy). She received her PhD in 2018 with the highest score and with the mentions of international doctor and industrial doctor at the University of Pablo de Olavide, for which she also received the extraordinary doctorate award. Her doctoral training was framed in European project THINFACE (Marie Curie ITN, FP7-PEOPLE-2013-IT) at the company Abengoa, world leader in solar energy, and focused on the on the fabrication and characterization of new materials for perovskite and organic solar cells.

Her current line of work focuses on the design, fabrication and characterization of new nanostructured materials and their integration into nanophotonic structures for different applications.
