Giuseppe Maruccio (1978) graduated in Physics (magna cum laude; best student in Physics at Lecce University from its institution in 1967) in 2000 and got his PhD in 2004. In 2005, he worked in Wiesendanger group (Hamburg) on wavefunction mapping by spatially resolved dI/dV images. Back in Lecce in 2006 at the Dept. of Mathematics and Physics, he is presently Associate Professor and carries out his research within the joint laboratories with CNR-NANOTEC with main focus on molecular and nano-spintronics, lab on chip, scanning probe microscopy.
At only 28 years, he was coordinator of the EU project SpiDME on molecular spintronics and then he was successfully granted in other open competitions (UE, FIRB, PRIN and MAE projects), attracting also funds from external sources such as private companies (Ekuberg Pharma s.r.l., Sensichips). He was involved in other EU projects in FP7 and H2020 (MolArNet as WP leader, ) and coordinated the presentation of many EU proposals for cooperation and training actions (about 30, in many cases evaluated as eligible for funding). Moreover he participated in writing large scale projects at the Institute level which allowed to buy very advanced instrumentation.
In 2010 he was Chair of the International conference “Trends in Spintronics and Nanomagnetism”, with the participation of Prof. Albert Fert, father of spintronics and Nobel Prize in Physics 2007, and Guest Editor of the conference proceedings (J. Physics: Conference Series, Vol. 292). G. Maruccio is author of more than 100 publications and 4 patents in addition to several invited contributions at international conferences, institutions and PhD schools (h-index 19, citations >1100 from ISI WEB OF KNOWLEDGE). He is also in the editorial board of (i) Journal of Spintronics and Magnetic Nanomaterials and (ii) International Scholarly Research Notices), beyond being referee for prestigious journals (including Science, Nature Nanotechnology, Phys. Rev. Lett., Lab on a chip, Nano Letters, ACS Nano, J. Am. Chem. Soc., …) and funding agencies (including EU-FP7, EU-H2020, MIUR, Israel Science Foundation, TWAS) and scientific evaluation agencies (ANVUR).
In 2013, along with some colleagues at Dip. di Matematica e Physics “Ennio De Giorgi”, he created the journal Ithaca, which intends to disseminate science among people who are attracted by science and want to know more than what is available in newspapers without having the possibility to read specialist scientific journals (http://ithaca.unisalento.it/, e-ISSN: 228 2-8079). In the period 2011-2012, he was member of the Governing Board of CNR-Nano-NNL, delegated for stimulating and strengthening internal and external scientific collaborations, until abolition of the board with the change of local director. From December 2014, he is Research Delegate for the Rector for the University of Salento.
