Elisabetta Comini earned her Laurea degree in Physics from University of Pisa working on crystals and spectroscopy in 1996; she then pursued her Ph.D. in Material science at the University of Brescia in 2000 on metal oxide thin films for chemical sensing. EC is a researcher specialist in the growth of metal oxides, particularly nanowires, thin films and the measurement of their electronic, functional and structural properties. She is responsible of the research line on “Metal oxide nanocrystalline quasi-1D structures” at the SENSOR laboratory (Brescia University and CNR-INO). She has been organizer of several symposia in the materials and sensing field for Materials Research society and European Materials Research society. She serves as a reviewer for various international journals and she is part of the technical program committee of several conferences in chemical sensing. She is supervising several undergraduate as well as graduate students at the University of Brescia. She has received the following awards: Outstanding Oral Presentation At Eurosensors XIX Conference (Barcelona, 2005), outstanding oral presentation at EUROSENSORS XX conference (Goteborg, 2006), winner of the first place “Science as art” 2010 MRS Spring Meeting, Eurosensors Fellow Award in 2012. EC has over 314 technical publications in peer-reviewed journals, book chapters and review papers; she is also editor of various books and holds four
patents issued. She is actively involved as organizer of symposia and conferences. During her career she has attended more than 90 conference and schools, she has more than 350 oral communications at conferences and she was invited and presenting herself 20 invited communications and 3 plenary talk. EC was chair of the Materials Research society fall meeting, Boston 2013.
