Dario Pisignano, PhD in Physics, is Full Professor and currently Head of the Physics Department ‘Enrico Fermi’ at the University of Pisa. He coordinates an interdisciplinary group working on Nanosciences and Soft Matter Physics, with focus on new lithographic, electrospinning and 3D-4D additive manufacturing processes for realizing micro-nanostructured devices, organic photonic components and other functional/intelligent systems. He was previously Associate Professor at the Department of Mathematics and Physics “Ennio De Giorgi” of the University of Salento and at the National Nanotechnology Laboratory in Lecce. He has been International Evaluator for projects for the National Science Foundation (NSF) U.S.A., the Austrian Science Fund (FWF), the Czech Science Foundation (GACR) and the Italian Ministry of Education, University and Research. He has been member of the International Advisory Committee of the “International Conference on Electrospinning” and of the Optical Materials, Fabrication and Characterization Committee of the “Conference on Lasers and Electro-Optics” (CLEO). He serves as Referee of the main international journals in the fields of Solid-State Physics, Nanotechnology and Materials Science, including Physical Review Letters, Angewandte Chemie International Edition, Advanced Materials, and Laser & Photonics Reviews. He authored more than 300 papers, and has been awarded the “Young researcher” Prize at the National INFM-Meeting, the International Obducat Prize for Nanoimprinting Lithography, the National Award “Future in Research” of the Ministry of Education, University and Research, the “Sergio Panizza” Award for Optoelectronics and Photonics (Italian Physics Society, SIF), and a Prize by the Erwin Schrödinger Society for Nanosciences. He has been the recipient of the NANO-JETS ERC Ideas Starting Grant and he as co-chaired the 4th International Conference on Electrospinning, in Italy (2016).
