Francesco Chiabrera holds a M.Sc. in energy and nuclear engineering from the Polytechnic of Turin and a Ph.D. in nanoscience from the University of Barcelona. He has carried out Ph.D. research at the Catalonia Institute for Energy Research (IREC) in interface-dominated oxide thin films for energy storage and conversion. He has been working as postdoc in the group of Functional Oxide, Technical University of Denmark, where he studied emerging functionalities in freestanding oxide thin-films for energy and information technology. He is currently working as research scientist at IREC within the frame of the of the ERC-PoC project TRANSIONICS, which aim to deliver highly stable and non-volatile solid-state synaptic transistors integrated on silicon.
