Giulia Lorusso is Researcher at the Bologna unit of CNR-IMM institute.
She holds a Bachelor’s degree in Physics from the University of Perugia (2007) and a PhD degree in Physics awarded by the University of Modena and Reggio Emilia (2011).
From 2008 to 2011, she carried out her PhD thesis at the CNR-S3 Institute of Nanoscience in Modena, studying molecular nanomagnets promising for spin-based quantum technologies and acquiring skills in the use of experimental techniques for the measurements of magnetic and thermodynamic properties at the extreme conditions of low temperatures and high-applied magnetic field.
From 2012 to 2020, she worked as Postdoctoral Researcher in Zaragoza (Spain) at the Instituto de Ciencia de Materiales de Aragón (ICMA-CSIC), broadening her interests towards the investigation of the magnetocaloric effect for molecule-based materials. She extended her expertise to the integration and the study of molecular coolers on surface, for low temperature on-chip magnetic refrigeration applications. Also, she dedicated her research activities to the fabrication of highly sensitive silicon-based thermal sensors and to the implementation of original set-ups, for advanced experiments on sub-milligram single-crystals and thin films materials. During these years, she has been awarded the prestigious IEF fellowship within the Marie Skłodowska-Curie actions (2012-2014), and two highly competitive Spanish postdoctoral grants: “Juan de la Cierva-formación” (2015-2016) and “Juan de la Cierva –Incorporación” (2017-2018). Also, she was responsible for a Spanish “JIN“ project for young researchers (2019-2020).
From November 2020, she will join the CNR-IMM institute in Bologna as Researcher.
Overall, she co-authored 46 publications, >95% of which in Q1 top journals for the scientific areas of Condensed Matter Physics, Materials Science, and Inorganic Chemistry; three of them are highlighted on their respective covers, while another received the GECAT award for 2013. Her publications have more than 150 different authors and have collected more than 1400 citations, resulting in a h-index of 22 (source Google Scholar). She participated in 3 European projects (Magmanet, MolSpinQIP, MaProMoDe) and 5 I+D Spanish projects (Maglink, MolDev, Ratiomag, Mirt, Remo). She presented her works in several international conferences, including 3 invited talks and 5 oral contributions. Since 2012, she regularly serve as a peer reviewer for APS, Wiley and Elsevier journals. Also, she is qualified as ‘Profesor Ayudante Doctor’ from ANECA (since 2016) and as Associate Professor for Experimental Matter Physics from MIUR (since 2017).
