Lorenza Suber was born in Rome, Italy, in 1955. She received the Chemistry degree (summa cum laude) from La Sapienza University of Rome (Italy) and the Ph.D. degree from the Inorganic Chemical Institute of the Ruprecht-Karl University of Heidelberg (Germany). Her present position is Senior Researcher of the National Research Council at the Institute of Matter Structure, Rome (Italy). Her research fields and activity regard the synthesis, structural and morphologic characterization, and magnetic and optical properties of metal and metal oxide nanoparticles. In particular, her present activity is focused on a) size and shape tailoring of iron oxide nanoparticles; b) coating of iron oxide particles with organic and inorganic polymers; c) synthesis of nanocomposite materials, that is, magnetic nanoparticles in polymeric matrices and fluids; d) synthesis and magnetic properties of iron oxide nanotubes; e) synthesis and formation mechanism of silver nanoparticles ordered in flower-like superstructures; f) synthesis, structure, morphology, and magnetism of thiol-capped silver particle and silver particle monodimensional superstructures for applications in nanodevices. In 2002, she received a one-year grant from the National Science Foundation (NSF) (Grant/Contract no. DMR-0102644) as Research Scholar by the Center for Advanced Materials Processing (CAMP), Clarkson University, Potsdam, NY, USA. Recently, she has been Project Leader of the CNR project (DG.RSTL.087.008): Nanoparticles and anisometric silver superstructures (CNR 2007-2009) and CNR Leader of the project: Ink Jet printing technology for advanced electronics applications, PrinTAG (2009-2010). She is Referee for many journals (Inorganic Chemistry, Journal of Molecular Structure, Journal of Material Science, Nanoscience and Nanotechnology, Applied Organometallic Chemistry, Journal of Materials Chemistry, Journal of Physical Chemistry B and C, Nano Letters, Nanoscience and Nanotechnology, and so forth).
