Marco Peccianti (M.Sc. 2000, Ph.D. 2004). In 2003, he was awarded the “Young Physicist” Prize “Vincenzo Caglioti” from the Accademia Nazionale dei Lincei and with “Outstanding Graduate Student Award” from the Lasers and Electro-Optics Society (LEOS). In July 2005, he received the Otto Lehmann international Award from Karlsruhe University (Germany) for the best Ph.D. thesis in the liquid crystal field, and in June 2006, he obtained the International Liquid Crystal Society Multimedia Award (Kent, USA). In March 2007, following the Award of a Junior Grant of the Research Center ENRICO FERMI (Rome, Italy) , he joined the Statistical Mechanics and Complexity Group (SMC), at the Department of Physics of the University “La Sapienza” (Rome, Italy). In November 2007, he received an Excellence Scholarship from the Government of Quebec for postdoctoral research (MELS). From October 2008 to September 2011, he was an European Union Marie Curie-Fellow Researcher investigating the terahertz photonics of biomatter. He is Researcher at the Institute for Complex Systems (CNR, Rome, Italy). His research interests include the theoretical and experimental investigations of nonlinear wave propagation in nonlocal anisotropic media, THz waves propagation, and integrated photonics. He authored more than 200 publications: 75 publications on international journals (including 1 nature, 2 nature physics, 1 nature photonics, 2 nature communications, 1 physics reports, 7 PRL, 5 applied physics letters, 12 optics letters, 9 optics express, etc.) and 125 communications to international conferences (including 16 invited talks and a 2 postdeadline). His overall h-index is 26 with more than 2600 citations. He is member of the Global Young Academy and member of the scientific reviewing pool of the European Science Foundation.
