About Nicola Peruffo

I am a postdoctoral researcher working on strong exciton-photon coupling. My research focuses on how light and matter can interact, and what are the consequences of these interactions. My studies concern the fundamental aspects of the photophysical and photochemical properties of nanostructured hybrid organic-inorganic materials.

I earned a Master's degree with honours in Materials Science at the University of Padova. The thesis was on the subject of upconverting nanoparticles and it included an Erasmus exchange at the Paris-Sud University with the group of Prof. N. Hildebrandt. Later, I won a PhD position in Science and Engineering of Materials at the University of Padova. Here, I strongly contributed to a new research line in the group of Prof. E. Collini about colloidal plexcitonic materials. My projects consisted in the preparation of these materials and in the study of their photophysics using ultrafast optical techniques.

I am now working in the group of Professor Karl Börjesson at the University of Gothenburg. My current research interests spread from the fundamental studies of strongly coupled materials to their application in the field of optoelectronics.
