Biographical Info

Andrea Idili is an Assistant Professor at the Department of Chemical Science and Technologies at the University of Rome Tor Vergata. He received his Ph.D. in Analytical Chemistry with full marks under the supervision of Prof. Francesco Ricci at the University of Rome Tor Vergata in 2017. During his Ph.D., he did three different visiting research periods (14 months) in the group headed by Prof. Alexis Vallée-Bélisle (University of Montréal, Canada). After a period as a postdoctoral researcher in the research group of Prof. Ricci, Dr.

Idili did two different postdocs in the group of Prof. Kevin W. Plaxco (University of California Santa Barbara, USA – from 2017 to 2019) and Prof. Arben Merkoci (Catalan Institute of Nanoscience and Nanotechnology ICN2, Spain – from 2019 to 2021). From 2021 Dr. Idili has returned to the University of Rome Tor Vergata as a Marie Skłodowska-Curie research fellow with the project “Entropic DNA sensors”.  His current research focuses on the development of novel DNA-based electrochemical and optical sensors able to support the real-time, continuous monitoring of diagnostically relevant molecules both in vitro and in vivo. The importance of his research is highlighted in more than 32 peer-reviewed papers (16 h-index) published in high-impact factor journals, 1 patent, and 2 book chapters. He has received several international/national awards and fellowships in recognition of his work, including the “Marie Skłodowska-Curie individual fellowship” (ERC, 2021), “ISSNAF Awards for Young Investigators 2019” (ISSNAF, USA), the “PROBIST postdoctoral fellowship 2018” (BIST, Spain), the “Honor mention 2014 Primo Levi award” (Italian Chemical Society), and the “Canada-Italy Innovation Award 2013” (Embassy of Canada to Italy).
