Antonio Tricoli received his PhD from ETH Zurich in 2010 with his thesis "Gas sensitive nanostructured films by direct flame synthesis and deposition". He then worked as a research fellow and lecturer at ETH Zurich focusing on the rapid synthesis of nanoparticle and nanowire layers for dye sensitized solar cells and non-invasive medical diagnostics. He joined the ANU in 2012 as research fellowunder the Future Engineering Research Leadership Fellowship. His current research focuses on several fields ofnanotechnology ranging from renewable energy production to non-invasive medical diagnostics, including: synthesis of novel nanostructures for energy production and storage, non-invasive medical diagnostics and functional coatings, and the engineering of novel dry processes for the synthesis of functional nanocomposites.
My research focuses on several fields of nanotechnology spacing from renewable energy production to non-invasive medical diagnostics. In collaboration with other Australian and international universities, I am currently leading the application of nanotechnolgoy to healthcare, portable device fabrication and chemical energy storage. I am looking for motivated PhD and undergraduate students willing to explore state-of-the-art materials and ready to propose their innovative solutions/idea to overcome current technological limitations. I am glad to offer research projects/thesis in our key research area topics and I am available to consider other directions tailored to specific research interests.
