G. Maruccio (1978) graduated in Physics (magna cum laude) in 2000 and got his PhD in 2004. In 2005, he worked in Wiesendanger group (Hamburg) on wavefunction mapping by spatially resolved dI/dV images. Back in Lecce in 2006, he is Researcher at Physics Dep. and carries out his research at CNR-NANO with main focus on molecular and nano-spintronics, scanning probe microscopy, lab on chip. He was coordinator of the EU project SpiDME on molecular spintronics and in 2010 Chair of the International conference â€œTrends in Spintronics and Nanomagnetismâ€, with the participation of Albert Fert, father of spintronics and Nobel Prize in Physics 2007. G.Maruccio is author of more than 60 publications and 3 patents in addition to several contributions at international conferences. He is also in the editorial board of (i) the Journal of Spintronics and Magnetic Nanomaterials and (ii) ISRN Nanotechnology, beyond being referee for a number of international journals and funding agencies.
