Development of computer codes for the simulation of charged particles - matter interactions for the application to basic physics, applied technological processes (ion implantation in semiconductors) and measurements techniques (Rutherford Back Scattering - Channeling). As responsible for Science dissemination and communication of the CNR Area in Bologna, he is actively involved in the organization of outreach projects for secondary schools, of science communication and dissemination projects (such as MSC H2020 action "EU Researcher's Night") and is curator of several websites devoted to the spreading of Scientific knowledge.


Giorgio Lulli, born in 1955, got his degree in Physics “cum laude” in 1980 at the University of Bologna. At present is Senior Researcher at CNR- Institute for Microelectronics and Microsystems - Bologna branch. Main expertise: semiconductor material science, optics of charged particles, electron and ion-beam irradiation of materials, ion implantation and ion-beam analysis of semiconductors, development of computer codes for the simulation of ion-matter interactions (ion-implantation, ion-beam analysis). Since 2005 he has been actively involved in many projects of science dissemination and communication and in the organization of outreach projects for secondary schools (see for instance: Sperimestate - http://sperimestate.bo.imm.cnr.it).
