Maria Lucia Curri, Associate Editor
University of Bari Aldo Moro, Italy
M. Lucia Curri is Full Professor of Physical Chemistry at the Chemistry Department of the University of Bari Aldo Moro (Italy) and Associate Research Scientist at the Institute for Physical and Chemical Processes of the Italian National Research Council (IPCF-CNR). She received her PhD from the University of Bari (Italy) in 1997, then she worked at CNR until 2018, when she was appointed Full Professor at the University of Bari Aldo Moro.
She is active in the field of materials chemistry, targeting the design and fabrication of inorganic and hybrid solids at the nanoscale to obtain multifunctional nanostructured materials and the investigation of their properties.
Her research is focused on developing original strategies for the preparation and functionalization of colloidal nanocrystal based inorganic and hybrid materials, both for fundamental studies and photocatalytic, optoelectronic, energy, (bio)sensing and biomedical applications. She has experience in surface engineering of nanoparticles and nanocrystals, for bioconjugation, organization in mesoscale structures and integration in nanocomposites.
