Biography

Emanuela completed her PhD in Materials at Imperial College London in 2013. During her PhD, she worked on the characterisation of titanium dioxide novel nano structures, including nano platelets and nano rods, using aberration-corrected transmission electron microscopy (TEM) and exit wave restoration, as well as a combination of scanning transmission electron microscopy (STEM) and electron energy-loss spectroscopy (EELS).

In September 2013, Emanuela joined the Department of Materials in Oxford as a post-doctoral researcher under the ESTEEM EU fp7 program. Her research involved the development of methods for the quantification and interpretation of aberration-corrected transmission electron microscopy images, using techniques such as focal and tilts series recovery of the specimen exit wave function, and imaging simulations. Alongside TEM image quantification, Emanuela also conducted research on lithium ion batteries, hydrogen storage materials and oxide nanoparticles with the aim of understanding structure-property relationships using a combination of TEM and STEM imaging.
 
Emanuela joined the ePSIC group at Diamond in September 2016 as an electron microscopy scientist. Her role includes users support, maintenance and development of the electron microscopes, execution and analysis of experiments in collaboration with the users and the ePSIC team.
