Andrea Zanetta


Born on the river of Piedmont’s lakes, June 15th 1995. Andrea moved to Milan in 2014 to start his studies.

In 2020 he obtained his Master of Science in Materials Engineering and Nanotechnology at Politecnico di Milano. During this period of time, he spent 7 months in Seville (Spain) at CicCartuja institute with an Erasmus+ scholarship in order to work on his Master Thesis. The essay dealt with the implementation in LED devices of a novel Perovskite nanocrystals synthesis method based on mesoporous matrixes.

In October 2020 he joined the PVsquared2 group to start his PhD journey, with a scholarship titled “Design and fabrication of 2D perovskites for stable solar cells”.
