Luca was born in Lecco (Italy) in 1990. He studied in Pisa (Italy) at Scuola Normale Superiore and at the local University. In 2014 he obtained a Master’s degree in Organic Chemistry working with Prof. Fabio Bellina (University of Pisa) and Dr. Laurence Grimaud (Ecole Normale Supérieure – Paris – France) on the mechanism of palladium-catalyzed C-H activation reactions. In 2018 he defended a PhD in chemistry at PSL Research University – Sorbonne Universités (Paris) under the supervision of Dr. Laurence Grimaud (Ecole Normale Supérieure) and Dr. Ilaria Ciofini (Ecole Nationale Supérieure de Chimie – Chimie ParisTech) on the mechanism of some transition metal-catalyzed reactions studied by both experimental and theoretical methods.
In March 2018 he joined the group of Prof. Paolo Melchiorre at ICIQ as a post-doctoral researcher. In his spare time Luca likes reading, listening to music and going to the opera.
