Valeria Nicolosi is a European Research Council Professor at Trinity College Dublin and internationally regarded as a leading expert in the field of adaptive nanostructures and nanodevices. In her research she focuses on novel materials such as graphene, a one-atom thick carbon sheet which is super strong, lightweight and electrically conductive, properties which form the basis for new technologies that can enable next generation semiconductor and energy storage devices. Next to faster and lighter smartphones, tablets and other electronics, her recent research holds the potential to impact the development of 3D printed, long lasting batteries that can be embedded within any type of material, from smart watches to clothes and implanted cardiac devices.
