   RESEARCH INTERESTS

 Physics Education and science communication, in particular: 

- - Development and validation of innovative experiments (aimed at tackling conceptual nodes, in particular of electromagnetism) realized by employing low cost and easy to find equipment, though technologically advanced.

- - Development and assessment of interdisciplinary learning paths (targeted to the last years of secondary schools and to the first year of university courses) aimed at semi-quantitatively introducing some cutting-edge topics of the physics of materials having considerable applicative relevance, such as: interaction between fluids and nano-structured surfaces; non-Newtonian fluids; surface diagnostics applied to cultural heritage maintenance.

- - Development of multimedia tools aimed at both: the teaching/learning of physics at secondary school level and the communication/dissemination of physics topics of broader interest, as well as for teachers training.

- - Critical analysis (in a pedagogical or historical perspective) of some fundamental themes of mechanics, electromagnetism, thermodynamics and modern physics. 

Applied Physics for cultural heritage:

- - Development of protective coatings for outdoor assets.

- - Multispectral imaging of paintings.
