Lorenzo Malavasi obtained his Ph.D. degree in chemistry in 2003. He is presently an Assistant Professor at the Physical Chemistry Department of the University of Pavia, Pavia, Lombardy, Italy. Malavasi was the recipient of the Young Scientist Award for outstanding work in the field of perovskites at the International Conference on Perovskites held in late 2005 in Zürich and of the 2008 Alfredo di Braccio Prize for Chemistry of Accademia Nazionale dei Lincei awarded to distinguished under-35-year-old chemists. He has contributions to the Journal of Materials Chemistry, Emerging Investigator issue in 2010, and to the Journal of Chemical Communications, the Emerging Investigator issue in 2011. He is working on several areas of solid state chemistry with particular interest in the investigation of structure–properties correlation in different kinds of functional oxides such as materials for solid oxide fuel cells, magnetic oxides, and high-temperature superconductors.
