Adolphe Merkle Institute, University of Fribourg
BioAlessandro obtained his B. Sc. in Chemistry at the University of Bologna, Italy, in 2014. Next, he joined the NanoBio Interface Lab at the same university as a post-graduate fellow. In October 2015 he moved to the Netherlands to join the laboratory of physical chemistry at Eindhoven University of Technology as a PhD student in the Physical chemistry group, where he received the Ph.D. in 2019. Subsequently, he moved to Adolphe Merkle Institute of University of Fribourg as a postdoc researcher in the Biophysics group, where he works in close collaboration with the Polymer Chemistry and Materials group. Since 2022 he serves as Group Leader in Biophysics. While working at AMI, he was awarded a Marie Curie Fellowship and an EIC Pathfinder Open. He is interested in studying self-association phenomena at the nanoscale, non-classical crystallization mechanisms, single-molecule characterization via nanopore technologies and the development of bioinspired electric devices.
