Federico Picollo was awarded a PhD in Science and Technology of Materials and Nanosystems in 2012. From 2012 to 2013, he held a Post-Doctoral fellowship at the Physics department of the University of Torino developing ion beam lithography of diamond. From 2014 to 2015 was awarded a grant for young scientist devoted to diamond nanofabrication for realization of multi-electrode array for neuron networks sensing funded by the Italian Institute of Nuclear Physics (INFN). During 2016, he held a Post-Doctoral fellowship at the Physics department of the University of Torino, to realize bio-sensors employing the techniques that he had previously developed. At the present, he is the PI of an INFN biannual project (2017-2018) on ion beam fabrication of diamond for particle and biosignals detection and is coordinator of an experiment at INFN - National Laboratories of Legnaro, which guarantees the access to MeV ion beam facility. Adjunct professor of the Bachelorís degree in Science and Technology of Materials at the University of Turin.
Federico Picollo's research focused on Excitable cell, in vitro neuronal network, exocytosis, action potential, diamond based MEA.
