Andrea Gamucci received his B.Sc. and M.Sc. degrees in Physics at the University of Pisa (Pisa, Italy). He got a Ph.D. in Applied Physics in 2009 from the same University and then he joined the NEST Laboratory of Scuola Normale Superiore and Istituto Nanoscienze-CNR in Pisa as a post-doc working on nanofabrication and spectroscopy of semiconductors. Andrea's work was mainly focused to the study of low-dimensional electron systems in semiconductors (i.e. nanofabricated quantum dots and artificial lattices in GaAs/AlGaAs heterostructures) with different optical and electrical transport techniques. He then worked on hybrid graphene-semiconductor systems to explore Coulomb drag transport in electron-hole fluids and on the optical and transport properties of micro-patterned graphene flakes on transparent substrates.
