Dr M. Lucia Curri, PhD in Chemistry 1997, is Senior Researcher at the Italian National Council Institute for Physical and Chemical Processes, Bari Division, Italy (CNR IPCF).

Currently she is responsible at CNR IPCF Bari Division for the material chemistry activities aiming to design, fabricate and process inorganic solids at the nanoscale.

Her activities are devoted to design and fabricate inorganic nanocrystals and process them in nanostructured and multifunctional materials for optoelectronic, photocatalytic and life science applications.

She is involved in development of synthetic strategies for preparation of colloidal nanocrystal based materials (metal, semiconductors and oxides), and tailoring of their physical and chemical properties towards photocatalytic, optoelectronic and (bio)sensing applications. In addition she has developed functionalization of the nanoparticles with diverse surface chemistry modification procedures, including bioconjugation, in order to organize the prepared nano-objects in mesoscopical structures (films, 2/3 D assemblies, with tailored functional collective properties. A consistent background is also present on the design and preparation of nanocomposites, based of nanocrystals and nanoparticles, for micro and nanofabrication.

She is responsible for CNR IPCF Bari in 6th and 7th European Framework Programme projects and has been involved in several national projects.

M. Lucia Curri has been reviewer for many high impact journals, expert evaluator of international project proposals and member of conference committees.

She is also active in teaching and tutorial activities, being co-tutor of several PhD and Master theses since 2000. She has co-authored over100 papers, more than 70 on JCR journal, and contributed to many conferences, also with invited talks.
