Marco Peccianti (M '00, PhD 04') received his MSc degree in Electronic Engineering in May 2000 (full marks and honors) from the University of Rome "Roma Tre", where he also  defended his PhD dissertation (research activities carried out at the nonlinear Optics and Optoelectronics Lab, Univ, Roma TRE, Rome, Italy) . In 2003 he was awarded with the "Best Young Physicist" prize "Vincenzo Caglioti" from the "Accademia Nazionale dei Lincei" and with a Fellowship as the 'Outstanding Graduate student' from the Lasers and Electro-Optics Society (LEOS). In July 2005 he received the Otto Lehmann international Award from Karlsruhe University (Germany) for the best PhD thesis in the Liquid Crystal Field and in June 2006 he obtained the International Liquid Crystal Society Multimedia Award for "..outstanding technical publications based on his doctoral thesis", Kent State University (Kent, USA). In March 2007, following the award of a Junior Grant of the research center "ENRICO FERMI" (Rome, Italy) , he joined the Statistical Mechanics and Complexity group (SMC), at the Dep. of Physics of the University "La Sapienza" (Rome, Italy). In Nov 2007 he received  an Excellence Scholarship from the Government  of Quebec for Post-Doctoral research (MELS).From Oct 2008 to Sept 2011 his work was supported through an European Union Marie Curie project on Terahertz photonics of biomatter TOBIAS PIOF-GA-2008-221262 that estabilished a collaboration between the UOP group of the INRS-EMT and the  IPCF-CNR research center (Rome, Italy). 

He is now Permanent Researcher at the Institute for Complex Systems of the Italian National Research Council (CNR, Rome, Italy). His overall H-Index is 25 with more than 2700 citations. In 2012, he has been elected member of the Global Young Accademy


Research interests

His research interests include the theoretical and experimental investigation of nonlinear wave propagation in nonlocal anisotropic media and liquid crystals, spatial solitons and modulational instability, THz waves propagation and their nonlinear interaction with matter. He is authors of more than 75 publications (with more than 2700 citations) on international journals (including 1 Nature, 1 Nature Physics, 1 Nature Photonics, 2 Nature Communications 7 PRL., 5 Appl. Phys. Lett., 12 Opt. Lett., 10 Opt. Express. etc.) and 120 communications to international conferences (Including 16 invited talks and a 2 Post-Dead Line).


He is a journal reviewer for several organizations such as the American Physical Society (APS), the Optical Society of America (OSA),  the American Institute of Physics (AIP), the Institute of Physics (IOP), etc. From the 2007, he has been invited to join the Pool of reviewers of the European Science Foundation and he is also  a reviewer for  the European Space Agency.
