Research Interests

Professor Falqui's research interests lie in the frontier between material science and bioscience. His main expertise is in electron microscopy both in scanning and transmission mode and related spectroscopies applied to nano-shaped inorganic materials and biomaterials.

In addition, his studies also concern the magnetic behavior of nanoparticles by superconducting quantum interference device (SQUID) magnetometry.
