Stefano Bellucci obtained his Ph.D. degree in physics of elementary particles at the International School for Advanced Studies (SISSA), Trieste, Italy (1986). He was a Research Associate at Brandeis University, Waltham, Mass., USA (1983–1985). Moreover, he was a Visiting Researcher at Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), Cambridge, Mass, USA (1985–1986); the University of Maryland, Md, USA (1986–1987); and the University of California at Davis, Calif, USA (1987–1988). He is also a Tenured Researcher (Research Staff) at the National Institute for Nuclear Physics (INFN) at its Laboratori Nazionali di Frascati since 1987, First Researcher (Senior Research Staff) at the same Institute since 2005, and he currently coordinates all theoretical physics activities at his Institution in Frascati. His research interests include theoretical physics, condensed matter, nanoscience and nanotechnology, nanocarbon-based composites, and biomedical applications. His lab cultivated about 20 Ph.D. degree and M.S. degree students in the fields of theoretical physics, condensed matter, and nanoscience and nanotechnology. His scientific contributions include (i) supersymmetric mechanics, (ii) black holes in supergravity, (iii) toxicity of nanomaterials, (iv) pion polarizabilities, and (v) gravitational waves. He appears in the list of Top Italian Scientists published by the Via Academy. He is a recipient of the B.W. Lee Prize at the Erice School of Subnuclear Physics (Erice, Italy) in 1982. Dr. Bellucci is a Series Editor of the Springer Lecture Notes in Nanoscale Science and Technology, an Associate Editor of Nanoscience and Nanotechnology Letters, an Editorial Board Member of Physics International, Computer Modelling and New Technologies, Journal of Materials, the Global Journal of Physics Express, and the Journal of Physics and Astronomy. He is the European Commission Expert for the Research Framework Programmes and Italian Research Ministry expert in industrial research.
