Prof. Cristiana Di Valentin
Cristiana Di Valentin graduated in Chemistry in 1997 at the University of Pavia where she received her Ph.D. degree in Chemical Sciences in 2000 in collaboration with the Technische Universität München. She also holds a Master degree in Materials Science. She was appointed by the University of Milano-Bicocca as Assistant Professor in 2002, as Associate Professor in 2012 and as Full Professor of General and Inorganic Chemistry in 2018. She has been post-doc or visiting scientist at Princeton University, Technische Universität München, Universitat de Barcelona, and Ecole Nationale Superieure de Paris. Her research activity spans from ab initio computational studies of semiconducting oxides and bidimensional materials for energy applications to multiscale modelling of bioinorganic hybrid nanosystems for biomedical applications. Professor Di Valentin has co-authored about 190 publications in peer-reviewed journals. She currently holds an ERC Consolidator Grant (2016-2022) entitled: Smart bioinorganic hybrids for nanomedicine.
