Research Interests

My scientific interests are mostly focused on the investigation of spontaneous complex structure formation from simple colloidal building blocks and falls in the broad domain of soft matter science. Soft matter pervades into daily life under several forms: biological matter, foams, food products, ink, tires, and many others. In contrast to their very different appearance, all these systems are governed by the same, fundamental physical laws.

Focus of my research activity is to obtain an understanding of these fundamental laws governing the spontaneous organisation of simple colloidal building blocks, such as surfactant, polymers, inorganic nanoparticles, etc., into complex, responsive systems. Particular attention is put on the characterization of the thermodynamic driving forces determining the behavior of the system and on the determination of the resulting structures and functionalities. More recently, I have been working on functional coatings and lipidic membranes.

I make an extensive use of structural characterization techniques, such as small-angle (neutron and X-ray) scattering, light scattering, ellipsometry, neutron reflectometry, and different microscopy techniques. The structural characterization is almost systematically coupled with the thermodynamic characterization of the system, performed using calorimetric, potentiometric, and volumetric methods.

Surfactants are among the simplest building blocks in the colloidal playground. Nevertheless, they exhibit an astonishingly rich behavior. In my research activity, I probe the behavior of very different class of surfactant, explore their response to changes in their chemical or physical environment, with the aim of a better understanding of their properties and to design simpler, greener, surfactant-based systems.

Chitosan is the deacetylated form of chitin, the second most abundant biopolymer after cellulose. This unique polysaccharide attracts wide interests due to its peculiar combination of characteristics. The presence of the amino groups along its backbone, imparts to the polymer a positive charge in acidic aqueous environment. In my research activity, the complex, self-organization behavior in mixtures of chitosan and oppositely charged surfactants is studied and exploited for the design of novel functional materials.

Anyone who attempted to prepare mayonnaise, knows how difficult the mixing of water and oil can be. Nevertheless, the importance of mixing liquids at the microscale goes far beyond a culinary pleasure. In fact, micro-, nano-, or macro-emulsions are of exceptional technical relevance and continuous efforts are made to develop novel, cheap, environmentally friendly procedures to prepare emulsion systems. 

The most common approach foresees the use of surfactants and cosurfactants, which stabilize the interface between the two liquids. The components need to be selected for the target application of the system, and might carry stimuli-responsive properties which allow to adapt the systems properties. Oil and water can, however, be mixed also without the use of surfactant molecules. The so-called "surfactant-free emulsions" are based on the Ouzo-effect, i.e., the formation of a metastable emolsion when a three liquids, pairwise fully miscible, are mixed together. The effect is at the basis of the turbidity arising upon diluting the famous Greek spirit or the French Pastis.

Exploring the behavior of soft matter upon application of an external pressure is at the same a fascinating and challenging topic. The interest into performing this studies is twofold. In the first place, pressure is an extensive thermodynamic parameter, as it is temperature. By the variation of pressure, we can explore the energetic landscape of a system, and obtain a deeper understanding of the interactions within the components and the driving forces governing its behavior. Sudden pressure variations, i.e, pressure-jumps allow us to probe the mechanism trough which certain processes take place, e.g., the mixing or demixing of polymer solutions. In addition, pressure is a technically highly relevant parameter, and understanding its effect on different colloidal systems will allow us to improve the design of, e.g., synovial fluids, pressure-responsive coatings, actuators, etc.

In our research activity, our limits are often set by missing sample environments or the inability of treating the collecting data. Part of my research activity aims at overcoming such limitations. Progress might be brought by novel approaches of data analysis, by providing the computational tools for data treatment, or in the design of new sample enviroments.
