Paolo Olivero, University of Torino, Italy
Paolo Olivero was awarded a PhD in Physics at the University of Torino in 2004. From 2004 to 2007, he held an Australian Post Doctoral fellowship at the School of Physics at the University of Melbourne, working on diamond-based quantum-optical devices. From 2007 to 2008, Paolo held a visiting scientist position at the Laboratory for Ion Beam Interactions of the Ruđer Bošković Institute of Zagreb, working on ion beam lithography techniques applied to artificial diamond. From 2008 to 2011, he was awarded a three year grant on the development of innovative diamond-based devices, funded by the Italian Academy of Science (Accademia Nazionale dei Lincei). Since 2011, Paolo has worked as a full-time researcher at the University of Torino, where he coordinates a research programme on the development of ion beam techniques for the modification and microfabrication of artificial diamond, specifically for applications in biosensing and quantum optics. In the last decade, he has coordinated several projects on these subjects, among which a four year “Future in Research” grant for young researchers, funded from 2011 to 2016 by the Italian Ministry for Teaching, University and Research.
