Personal profile


Daniele holds A PhD in Materials Science and Technology (2019) attained at the University of Crete within the Marie Skłodowska Curie training network “COLLDENSE” (Colloids of Designed Response). Daniele is a Soft Matter experimentalist, with extensive knowledge of rheology, rheometry, polymer and colloidal physics. 

The research goal in the Parisi group is to understand the structural and dynamic properties of various (bio)polymeric and colloidal systems, in quiescent and under deformation conditions, to design and engineering novel impactful applications.

The experimental research approach involves various rheological techniques, often coupled with in-situ spectroscopy (i.e., birefringence, light scattering, Raman and FTIR), and molecular models, with the aim at linking molecular properties of polymers and macroscopic rheological response.
