Andrea Orsini

Andrea Orsini ( was born in Rome, Italy, 1978. He received the M.Sc. (cum laude) in Electronic Engineering from the University of Rome “Tor Vergata” (Italy) in 2002 with a thesis entitled “Thin film micro thermopiles” and worked as a graduate technician for the same university until 2006 under the supervision of Prof. Arnaldo D’Amico.

In 2006, he joined the Ph.D. on “Materials for environment and energy” at the University of Rome “Tor Vergata”. As a part of his Ph.D. program, he was invited (1 year) to work at the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory with the main task of designing and building a pulsed laser deposition system at the ALS synchrotron, in order to study electronic properties of transition metal oxides.

Since 2010, he joined the Piezo-Nano-Devices group at the Department of Electronic Engineering, University of Rome “Tor Vergata”, led by Christian Falconi. His research interests include material science, electronic and piezoelectric properties at nanoscale, sensors, microsystems and nanosystems for bio-medical applications.
