Dr. Maurizio Casalino graduated summa cum laude in electronic engineering from the University of Naples "Federico II" and he received his Ph.D. degree in engineering electronic from the University “Mediterranea” of Reggio Calabria in 2008. In 2010, he joined as a researcher to the Institute of Microelectronic and Microsystems (IMM) of the National Council of Research (CNR) which has recently changed his name into: Institute of Applied Sciences and Intelligent Systems "Eduardo Caianiello" (ISASI-CNR), in Naples (Italy). He is in charge of the electronic laboratory and of fundamental technologies of the Clean Room of ISASI-CNR. He has been teaching optoelectronic and photonic at the University of Calabria from 2009 to 2012 and he is currently responsible for the course of physics of the semiconductors and devices at the University of Campania “Luigi Vanvitelli” in Caserta (Italy). He is an author of more than 80 scientific articles published in peer-reviewed journals, proceedings of congress, book chapters, and review articles. His research interests include the design, fabrication, and characterization of photonic devices. During his research activity, he has collaborated in carrying out several research projects financed by CNR, public and external organizations and European Community. He is currently coordinator of the project REVEAL, funded by the European Community, aimed to develop graphene/silicon near-infrared photodetectors. Dr. Casalino has served as a reviewer for many international scientific journals, among them: Nanoscale, Small, ACS Nano and Nature Communications. He is currently a member of the Italian Society of Optics and Photonics (SIOF), member of the Italian Society of Electronics (SIE) and member of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE).
