Michele Perego is research director at CNR-IMM. He received the Degree in Physics from Università degli Studi dell’Insubria in 1999. In February 2004 he obtained the PhD in Physics, Astrophysics and Applied Physics from the University of Milano. In the period 2004-2007 he has been Post-Doctoral Fellow at the MDM Laboratory. Since 2007 he has been employed as a Research Scientist at IMM-Unit of Agrate Brianza. His research activity focuses on the development of new bottom-up approaches for the synthesis of functional nanostructured materials with typical dimension below 20 nm. In particular, he is interested in the understanding the fundamental issues related to the doping of semiconductor nanostructures and in the development of new self-assembly strategies to control doping of semiconductors at the nanoscale.
