I studied Physics Engineering at Politecnico di Milano (Milano, Italy), where I earned a bachelor’s degree followed by a master’s degree. Both of them consisted mainly of solid state physics classes, with a particular focus on semiconductors (for electronics and photonics application) and magnetic nanostructures. My first experience in research was at the European Synchrotron Radiation Facility (Grenoble, France), where I spent 10 months working as a trainee for my master thesis project.

Diamond will soon be advertising their PhD studentships to start in Autumn 2018. The programme will continue to strengthen collaborations with partners across the UK, and bring together a cohort of exceptional students to carry out world leading research in synchrotron technology.
Diamond studentships attract an enhanced stipend, in recognition of the rural location of the facility, and also to encourage high quality candidates to apply to the programme.
Studentships will be between Diamond and Research Organistion partners (UK higher institutions and/or other approved organisations). We expect that students will spend 50% of their studentship, which will usually last between 3.5-4 years, at Diamond.
