Curriculum: 

Giorgia Franzò is a member of the research staff at the Institute for Microelectronics and Microsystems (IMM) within Consiglio Nazionale delle Ricerche (CNR) in Catania, Italy. She received her master degree and PhD in Physics from the University of Catania in 1992 and 1996, respectively. In 1999 she joined the National Institute for the Physics of Matter (INFM) in Catania, before being hired by CNR. Her research interests mainly focus on Si-based micro-photonics and in particular on silicon nanostructures (with and without rare-earth doping), rare-earth compounds, Si nanowires. She is author of more than 150 papers in International scientific journals and holds 2 patents. The pioneering character and the impact of her research activity is demonstrated by the huge number of citations (more than 7000) and her h-index (37).
