Bio and Research interests

Grafica5

Dr. Giovanni A. Salvatore is a Scientific Fellow at the Wearable Computing Group at ETHZ since November 2011.He was born in Spinete, Italy. He received his bachelor in Electronics from the Polytechnic of Turin in 2004. He then partecipated to the NANOTECH Master and graduated in 2006 with a thesis carried out in the Research Laboratory of Electronics at MIT on a new nanoimprinting technique. Giovanni received his Phd in 2011 from EPFL for his work on ferroelectric transistor (EPFL these 4990). He is now spending a visiting period in the Rogers group at UIUC (USA)

Giovanni's research focuses on the study and exploitation of 'soft' materials like polymers, biological tissues and as well as hybrid combinations of them with unusual classes of micro/nanomaterials, in the form of thin films, membranes or related. The goal is to design and engineer novel electronic devices with unusual flexible/stretchable/conformable characteristics with an emphasis on wireless and bio-inspired technologies. Briefly Giovanni's interests can be divided into 4 main areas:

Giovanni is promoter and investigator of the following research projects:
