Scientific profiles



Alessandro Chiolerio got the PhD from the Physics Department of Politecnico di Torino in 2009, a Full Professorship Habilitation (Condensed Matter Physics) and an Associate Professorship Habilitation (Electronics) in 2017. He has developed a transdisciplinary profile, bridging together condensed matter physics, electromagnetism, materials science, applied mathematics, computer science, space engineering and nanotechnology. He has been listed among the top 1% scientists in Applied Physics according to Field Weighted Impact metrics (2019).

He has worked with several institutions, including Istituto Italiano di Tecnologia (IIT) Center for Space Human Robotics, Jet Propulsion Laboratory of NASA (Pasadena, U.S.A.), the Max Planck Institute for Microstructure Physics (Halle, Germany), the IIT Center for Sustainable Future Technologies, and the University of the West of England (Bristol, U.K.). His actual mission is that of exploring liquid state cybernetic systems.

He is co-author of more than 120 scientific papers, and holds 14 patents as sole or principal inventor, covering Italy, Europe and the United States. Alessandro works as expert evaluator for the Italian Ministry of Economic Development, for the European Commission, for the American Department of Energy, and for several other national bodies devoted to research funding. In parallel to the research activity, he also established two spin-off companies that collected so far close to 6 M€ of capital investment as well as several Italian and European prizes for innovation.
