RESEARCH ACTIVITY
MV activity focussed on the study of the photophysical properties of biomolecules in solution and in organized phase (liposome, vesicles, membranes). In particular, he studied the mechanisms of electron transfer processes in biomimetic systems . Recently, his scientific interest shifted to the design and characterization of bio-hybrid materials, peptide self-assembled monolayers, porphyrin nanostructures. He is author and co-author of more than 190 papers on international journals (Hindex 29), and of more than a hundred of communications to national and international conferences. He held seminars and invited talks at the University of Bologna, Perugia, Padova, Catania, Ecole Normale Superieur in Paris, Technical University of Prague, Melbourne University, Bjelorussian Academy of Science, Universidad de La Habana.
