Supervisor: E. Modena (PCL) & Prof. L. Maini (UNIBO)
Secondment 1: Graz University of Technology
Secondment 2: University of Cambridge
My work in UHMob
Study and comparison of bulk and surface-induced polymorphism to gain a fundamental understanding of the polymorphism of molecular semiconductors in order to obtain the best-performing semiconductor.
Keywords: organic semiconductors, polymorphism, surface-induced polymorphism, thin films, crystallography
I would like to have a challenging job in an industrial sector that could encourage me to grow and progress in my scientific career, more precisely in the nanotechnology and semiconductors industry.

I am from São Bartolomeu de Messines, a small village from Algarve, Portugal. I studied micro and nanotechnologies engineering at the New University of Lisbon (FCT-UNL). After graduation, I worked for 18 months as a research fellow at Cenimat|i3N. I like traveling and going to music festivals with my friends.
