My work is focused on identifying industrial challenges which can be addressed with spectroscopic gas sensing and leveraging the silicon photonics platform.
Throughout my career I worked on different topics at the intersection between technology and applied physics. I developed optical sensor technology at ABB Corporate Research (Switzerland) and contributed to establishing MicroGauge AG, a vacuum pressure sensor technology start-up (Switzerland). At IBM Research (Switzerland) I studied the effect of stress on III-V devices and monolithic semiconductor integration. At ABB Corporate Research (Switzerland) I tested contact materials for high-voltage circuit breakers. My passion for technology started fabricating and measuring high TC superconducting devices at the Microtechnology Center at Chalmers MC2 (Sweden). I was awarded with a PhD from University of Basel (Switzerland) in 2013 and the METAS prize 2014 for Metrology from the Swiss Physical Society. I studied physics engineering at Politenico di Milano (Italy) and nanoscience at Chalmers University of Technology (Sweden).
