Cecilia Mattevi is a Royal Society University Research Fellow in the Department of Materials at Imperial College London since October 1, 2012. Her research interests centre on science and engineering of novel 2D atomically thin materials to enable applications in energy conversion and energy storage. Mattevi’s research group focuses on the precise synthesis of 2D materials and their three-dimensional structuring in the form of miniaturized devices to address pressing challenges in energy storage devices and energy conversion systems.

Cecilia has been awarded an ERC-Consolidator Grant 2018 3DAddChip
Cecilia’s past funding supports: science and engineering of 2D semiconducting materials (EPSRC 1st grant, EPSRC-Royal Society fellowship engagement, The Royal Society University Research Fellowship), the development of methods for large scale synthesis of graphene for applications in different technology areas from energy storage to polymer/ceramic composite materials (EPSRC-Graphene Engineering), engineering large scale implementation of graphene-composite (Petronas), and energy applications of graphene derivatives (EU-Graphene Flagship).
Prior to this appointment Cecilia, earned her PhD in Materials Science in 2008 undertaking her doctoral research at the European Synchrotron Facility Elettra, Trieste, IT. Cecilia then joined the group of Prof. Manish Chhowalla in the Materials Science and Engineering Department at Rutgers University, NJ, USA as a postdoctoral associate where she worked on chemically derived graphene for large area optoelectronic applications. In 2010, Cecilia joined Imperial as Junior Research Fellow.
