PhD Student

Mario Urso was born on 21th of October 1992 in Catania, Italy. He attained his Master Degree in Physics with marks 110/110 cum laude from the University of Catania in October 2016. In November 2016 he started the Ph.D. course in Materials Science and Nanotechnology at the University of Catania. He is currently working under the supervision of Prof. Francesco Priolo and Prof. Salvo Mirabella at the Physics and Astronomy Department of the University of Catania and at the CNR-IMM. His main scientific interests are focused on the low-cost synthesis of Ni-based nanostructures for sensing and energy storage applications.
