Pietro was born in Genoa (Italy) and received his B.Sc. (2015) and M.Sc. (2017) cum laude in Chemical Sciences from the University of Genova. During his Master’s thesis he worked on the development of novel photoinduced multicomponent reactions, under the supervision of Prof. Andrea Basso. He is currently pursuing his doctoral studies under the same advisor, focusing on the development of new synthetic methodologies in the field of organic photochemistry and photoredox catalysis. In January 2021 he joined Prof. Melchiorre’s group at ICIQ as visiting student to deepen his knowledge and experience in the field. Outside the lab he loves playing his guitar and listening to music, or just enjoying nature at the sea or in the mountains with some friends.
