Giuseppe Vicidomini , Ph.D.

Giuseppe Vicidomini

Giuseppe Vicidomini studied computer science at the Department of Computer and Information Science, University of Genoa (DISI, Genoa, Italy) and received his Diploma in 2003. From 2003 to 2007 he worked at the Laboratory of Advance Microscopy and Spectroscopy (LAMBS, University of Genoa, Genoa, Italy); where he received his Ph.D (advised by Prof. Alberto Diaspro) about image processing and analysis for fluorescence microscopy. From 2008 to 2011 he worked as a post-doctoral fellow at the Department of NanoBiophotonics, Max Planck Institute for Biophysical Chemistry (MPI, Goettingen, Germany); where he developed a new approach to further enhance the resolution ability of stimulated emission deletion (STED) microscopy. Since May 2011 he works in the Department of NanoPhysics,  Italian Institute of Technology (IIT, Genoa, Italy) as a post-doctoral fellow. His research interests are primarily concentrated on theoretical design and practical validation of far-field fluorescence microscopes with spatial resolution beyond the diffraction limit.
