2022 Winner | Lab 2022 2022 Winner Speaker Winner Lab Finalist Emerging Talents (Falling Walls Lab)

Francesca Cova is a postdoctoral researcher in the Department of Materials Science at the University of Milano – Bicocca (Italy). She graduated 2016 (Physics) and earned her PhD in Materials Science and Nanotechnology in 2020, with a thesis on scintillating optical fibers. She is currently working on the development of the future generation of ionizing radiation detectors. Her research interests focus on new, fast, and radiation hard scintillating materials, with special attention on emerging technologies such as nanostructures and nanocomposites, including quantum dots, perovskites nanocrystals, semiconductor nanoplatelets and metal organic frameworks. She is the principal investigator of an innovative project funded by the Italian foundation University for Innovation, for the production of stable and long-lasting power by converting the radiation energy from nuclear decays.
