Daniela Iacopino

Biography

Dr Daniela Iacopino obtained her MSc in Chemistry from Universitá di Pavia (Italy) in 1995 and her PhD in Chemistry from Universitá di Modena (Italy) in 2000. As part of her PhD she spent one year in the chemistry department of University of Birmingham (UK) where she started working on synthesis of plasmonic nanoparticles. Between 2000 and 2002 Daniela worked as postdoctoral fellow in the department of Chemistry of University College Dublin on a EU FP6 project (BIOAND) on the biofunctionalisation of Au nanoparticle with DNA for electronic applications. At the end of the project in 2002 Daniela moved to Tyndall (then NMRC) as postdoctoral fellow and worked for four years on template fabrication and characterization of polymer nanowires with enhanced optoelectronic properties. Since 2008 Daniela is staff researcher in the Nanotechnology group of the Tyndall National Institute, where she now works on synthesis and integration of nanostructured materials into devices for sensing and energy storage applications. Daniela is a funded investigator within two SFI  research centres and has a long history of research funding including participation to national (SFI, EI, IRC) and international (EU FP6, FP7, H2020) frameworks both as partner and PI. Her current research funding comprise two H2020 (NMBP, CSA) projects and two national projects (SFI centres VistaMilk and CONNECT). Daniela has graduated 4 PhD students and has supervised > 15 master and visiting students. Daniela is part of the Empowering Women committee in Tyndall.
