Alberto G. Curto obtained his BSc in Physics from the University of Salamanca (Spain) in 2007. Between 2008 and 2013, he worked towards his MSc and PhD in Photonics from ICFO, the Institute of Photonic Sciences in Barcelona.
Alberto worked as a postdoctoral Marie Curie fellow at Stanford University (USA) from 2013 to 2016. He was appointed Assistant Professor at Eindhoven University of Technology in 2016 and was recipient of an NWO START-UP Grant from the Netherlands Organization for Scientific Research (2018).

The goal of Alberto's research is to find new and improved ways of making light interact with very small matter such as molecules. He is developing semiconductor nanophotonics for sensing, imaging, and spectroscopy.
His current research interests span from the optics and optoelectronics of atomically thin semiconductors to chirality in nano-optics. Alberto received an ERC Starting Grant from the European Research Council (2020). In 2021 he was designated as OSA Senior Member of the Optical Society.
As of February 2022, Alberto joined the Photonics Research Group at Ghent University-imec.
