Profile Summary

Francesco Chiavaioli received the M.Sc. degree (summa cum laude) in Telecommunications Engineering and the Ph.D. degree in Information Engineering from the University of Siena, Italy, in 2008 and 2012, respectively. In 2015-2016, he was a Visiting Scientist with the ICFO, Barcelona, Spain. From 2018, he is a permanent Researcher with the National Research Council of Italy (CNR), the Institute of Applied Physics “Nello Carrara” (IFAC). His research activities encompass the ERC-related sectors of PE7_5, PE7_6, PE5_9, PE4_5, PE3_12, LS5_11, LS7_2 and LS9_1. In particular, the research activities include fiber sensing system, fiber gratings, optical biosensors, assay development for biomolecule detection, nano-materials for sensors, Bloch surface wave devices, WGM resonators, SPR-based and lossy mode resonance-based devices, bile/pH fiber optic probes, in-fiber random structures, photonic nanostructures and devices for life
science. He worked or is actively working in projects at National, European and International levels. He is author of more than 90 publications on the subjects in ISI Journals, in Conference Proceedings and in book chapters. He presented over 9 invited talks at conferences or as lectures (SPIE Student Chapter, INESC-TEC, Porto, 2015; University of Nottingham, UK, 2019; Jinan University, China, 2019), and earned a Journal Cover from MDPI Biosensors (Vol. 7, No. 2, June 2017). He is part of Editorial board of MDPI Optics and of Program Committee of SPIE Photonics Europe conference (“Optical Sensing and Detection” session), and is jury member of several Ph.D. thesis. He acts as confirmed Reviewer in more than 20 top-level ISI journals (Advanced Science, Light: Science & Applications, Optica, Small, Biosensors and
Bioelectronics, etc.). He is Member of ACS, OSA, SPIE, EOS, and SIOF. He was awarded the “Short Term Mobility” program 2017 and 2019 by CNR, and as Outstanding Reviewer by IEEE (2018), OSA (2019) and IOP (2020 and 2021).
