Altamura Davide


Davide Altamura graduated in Physics in 2002 at the University of Bari. He performed postgraduate research training and activity mainly at the IMM-CNR (Institute for microelectronics and microsystems) in Lecce and at the ENEA (National agency for the new technologies, energy, and environment) research center in Brindisi (Italy). Obtained his Ph.D. in Innovative materials and technologies in 2008 at the University of Salento (Lecce, Italy), working at the National Nanotechnology Laboratory (NNL) on piezoelectric resonators. Postdoc experience at the IMIP-CNR (Institute for the inorganic and plasma methodologies), and at the Institute of Crystallography (IC-CNR) in Bari. Since 2011 he is a permanent researcher of the IC-CNR.
