Affiliated Researcher
Advanced Materials for Optoelectronics
Research center

Daniele Cortecchia received his Bachelor of Science in Materials Chemistry and Ceramic Technology in 2010 and the Master of Science in Industrial Chemistry in 2012 at the University of Bologna. He then moved to Singapore, where in 2018 was awarded the PhD at the Interdisciplinary Graduate School at Nanyang Technological University, performing his research between the School of Physical and Mathematical Sciences and the Energy Research Institute @ NTU (ERI@N) in the framework of the program “Research in Sustainable Earth”. Since 2017 he joined the Italian Institute of Technology, Center for Nano Science and Technology (IIT-CNST), Milan in the group led by Dr. Annamaria Petrozza. In 2018 he was awarded with the MSCA Seal of Excellence. Since 2020, he is Marie Curie Fellow at IIT working on the project PERICLeS.

His research covers the study of advanced metal halide perovskites for application in optoelectronics, with focus in light-emitting and photonic devices. He is particularly interested in the development of rational synthetic design strategies for the control of perovskite’s luminescence properties exploiting the wide synthetic flexibility of low-dimensional materials, and in the investigation of their fundamental photophysical properties.
