Dr Federico Pesci
Federico is a research associate in the Department of Materials, investigating on solid state lithium-ion batteries in the Aguadero Research Group. His current research interest lies in the study of the processes occurring at the electrode/electrolyte interface, with particular interest in dendrites formation.
Before joining the Aguadero research group he worked in the Mattevi research group (Department of Materials, Imperial College London) investigating the optical, electrochemical and photoelectrochemical properties of 2D materials beyond graphene such as MoS2 and WS2 employed as photocatalysts during photoassisted water splitting and CO2 reduction.
Prior to join the Department of Materials, Federico completed a Master in Chemistry with honours from the University of Bologna in 2009 and was awarded a PhD in Chemistry in Imperial College London with a thesis entitled “Metal Oxide Semiconductors Employed as Photocatalysts during Water Splitting” (2014). During his PhD he employed a wide range of spectroscopic techniques such as Transient Absorption Spectroscopy and Sum Frequency Generation Spectroscopy to investigate the dynamics and the intermediates of reaction involved during photoelectrochemical solar fuels production.
