Andrea Centrone is a Project Leader in the Energy Research Group. He received a Laurea degree and a Ph. D. in Materials Engineering from the Polytechnic University of Milan, Italy, working on nanoporous materials for hydrogen storage applications. Andrea performed postdoctoral work at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, first as a Rocca Fellow in the Department of Material Science and Engineering, studying the phase separation of molecules self-assembled on metal nanoparticles. He continued his postdoctoral work in in the Department of Chemical Engineering, investigating the use of metal-organic frameworks for small molecules separation and gold nanorods for in vivo cancer detection and treatment. Andrea joined the CNST in 2010, where he is developing new measurements methods (such as PTIR and STIRM) that combine wavelength tunable lasers with scanning probe techniques to provide correlated optical, chemical and thermal property maps of materials with nanoscale resolution. In collaboration with CNST users, Andrea leads multiple projects aimed at the nanoscale characterization of metal-organic frameworks, organo-metal tri-halide perovskites, plasmonic and polaritonic nanostructures for light detection and photovoltaics. Andrea has authored or coauthored over 30 peer reviewed publications and has given more than 20 invited presentations.
