Francesco Di Giacomo graduated cum laude in Material Science and Technology at Università degli Studi di Roma Tor Vergata in 2012. During the master he spent a semester as ana exchange student at TUe, the Eindhoven Technical University, making an internship at the Material and Interface Chemistry research group focusing on self repleishing superhydrophobic coating. His master thesis was focused on TiO2 paste formulation for plastic Dye Solar Cell.
My research activity can be divided in two major issue: developing material and process for screen printing efficient flexible Dye Solar Cells and Module and scaling-up of new peroskite solar cell.
