Alessandro Molle is a research
director at the Institute for Microelectronics and Microsystems in the National
Research Council of Italy. He
earned an MSc degree in physics and a PhD degree in materials science from the
University of Genoa and currently leads MSc and PhD courses at the University
Molle was guest editor of special issues in Elsevier and MDPI
journals, co-editor of one book about 2D materials for nanoelectronics
published by CRC press (2016) and one book about the Xenes published by
Elsevier (2022), and serves as Deputy Editor of Research, an American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) partner journal.
He has published more than 130 peer-reviewed publications,
five book chapters, and he has given over 40 invited talks. His
research interests have included nanomaterials and electronic materials in the
field of semiconductor science for complementary metal-oxide-semiconductor (CMOS) technology, and his main research subject is currently on the synthesis of two-dimensional (2D) materials beyond graphene, like Xenes and transition
metal dichalcogenides, and their integration in nanotechnologies with focus on nano and optoelectronics. Molle has been awarded two grants from the European Research Council (ERC) and served as a symposium organizer at Materials Research Society
and European Materials Research Society meetings.
