Filippo Pierini is a Professor and the head of the Pierini Research Group at the Institute of Fundamental Technological Research, Polish Academy of Sciences (IPPT PAN). He received his M.Sc. in Advanced Chemical Methodologies with the highest grades and honors (110/110 summa cum laude) in 2009 and his Ph.D. in Chemical Sciences at the University of Bologna (Italy) in 2013. He obtained his Habilitation in Material Engineering and was appointed Professor at IPPT PAN in 2020. Filippo Pierini is an expert in structure-property relationships in advanced nanofibrous materials, focusing on polymers’ mechanical and electrical features and light-matter interaction at the nanoscale. His research interests span a broad area of nanotechnology disciplines, including bioengineering, sensing, energy storage, filtration, and photovoltaics, using natural structures as inspiration. Pierini Research Group’s research activities are primarily devoted to developing innovative functional biomaterials using electrospinning. In particular, the team focuses on the fabrication and application of light-activable nanomaterials for drug delivery, tissue engineering, biosensing, and brain-machine interfaces.
