Andrea Gauzzi obtained a MSc degree in Physics Engineering at the Polytechnic Institute of Milan, Italy and a PhD in Physics at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology at Lausanne, Switzerland. He has been postdoctoral fellow at the Ecole de Physique et Chimie Industrielle of Paris (ESPCI) and later became Associate Professor at the Italian National Research Council (CNR) in Parma, Italy. In 2005, he was appointed full Professor of Condensed Matter and Materials Physics at the IMPMC Institute of the University Pierre et Marie Curie – Sorbonne, Paris, France. He has been guest full Professor at the University of Tokyo, Japan and at the Federal University of São Carlos, Brazil.
His area of research concerns the study of the electronic and transport properties of novel materials, specifically transition metal oxides and sulphides, which display remarkable properties driven by strong electron-electron correlations, such as unconventional superconductivity, metal-insulator transition, charge, spin and orbital orderings or multiferroicity. He is author of about 100 papers in peer-reviewed journals and of 3 industrial patents.
