Antonio Agresti obtained the Master Degree in Electronic Engineering cum laude at University of Rome "Tor Vergata". His thesis was on: "Design and development of a forecasting system of power produced by a photovoltaic plant" (Supervisor, Prof. Aldo Di Carlo). He carried out his thesis in collaboration with photovoltaic company "Kenergia" in Rome, Italy.

Currently he is attending the Ph.D. (fellowship holder) in Telecommunications and Microelectronics Engineering (XXVII cycle) at C.H.O.S.E., within the OLAB (Optoelectonic and Nanoelectronic Devices) research group of the Electronics Engineering Department, at University of Rome "Tor Vergata".

Research Activity

His research activity concerns the investigation of Dye-Sensitized Solar Cells (DSSCs) using ultrafast spectroscopy, and the comprehension of degradation mechanisms for long-term stability of these devices using resonant confocal micro-Raman spectroscopy.

His experimental research is also focused on the development and characterization of Small Molecules solar cells using both spectroscopic techniques.
