Emanuele Verrelli

Lecturer in Physics, Director of Postgraduate Researchers, Seminar organiser, First aider

Biography Emanuele received his degree in Physics (equivalent MPhys) "cum laude" from the department of Physics at the University of Rome "La Sapienza" (Italy) in 2002. He then obtained a Master in Physics (MSc) from the department of Physics at the National Technical University of Athens (NTUA, Greece) in 2004 where he also obtained his PhD in 2010 on "Semiconducting and metallic nanoparticles for non-volatile memory applications" under the supervision of Prof. D. Tsoukalas. For his PhD thesis work Emanuele was later awarded the "Best PhD thesis in the year 2010" prize.

After his PhD, Emanuele worked as postdoctoral research fellow at NTUA and Oxford in 2010 and 2011 in a joint collaboration between industry and academia (EU Marie-Curie project) for the development of nanoparticle resistive switching memories based on titanium dioxide nanoparticles. In 2012 he joined, as postdoctoral research fellow, Prof. Mary O'Neiil's group in the Department of Physics and Mathematics at the University of Hull (UK) where Emanuele was working toward the development of a hybrid high-k nanocomposite dielectric material for organic electronic applications (organic field effect transistors and hybrid resistive switching memories).

Since 2016, Emanuele is a permanent academic staff member of the department of Physics at the university of Hull, as Experimental Research Officer initially and since 2018 as lecturer in Physics. He is a member of the G. W. Gray Centre for Advanced Materials.

Emanuele’s expertise focuses on the investigation of the properties of matter to create smart functional electronic and/or optical devices using advanced micro-nanoelectronic fabrications processes (e.g. photolithography) and characterizations techniques (e.g. current-voltage, impedance spectroscopy). Emanuele has also extensive knowledge and experience in standard PCB design, manufacturing and characterization and has, in the last few years, started new research in the field of 3D printing.
Research Interests Emanuele is interested in the experimental and theoretical electronic properties of matter, particularly at the nanoscale and/or when nanoparticles are involved.
Emanuele's research group, the NanoElectronics and Mesoscopic Systems (NEMeSys) group, focuses its attention around the use of nanomaterials for information storage, energy harvesting, energy storage and sensing applications. Find out more here:
