Felice Torrisi is a Senior Lecturer in Chemistry of 2D materials and Wearable Electronics in the Department of Chemistry and Fellow of Trinity College, Cambridge. He previously held a University Lectureship in Graphene Technology in the Department of Engineering at the University of Cambridge, where he jointly managed the Centre for Doctoral Training in Graphene Technology and the Cambridge Graphene Centre. He graduated at the University of Catania, Italy, after a research period at the Institute of Microelectronics and Microsystems of the Italian National Research Council. Before moving to Imperial College, he worked in the Department of Engineering at the University of Cambridge as a PhD student, then as a Research Fellow and finally as a Lecturer. His research interests span from printed and flexible electronics to photonics with graphene and 2D materials, with particular focus on energy, sensing, wearable electronics and bioelectronics.

Joining the group

We constantly welcome enthusiastic students and postdocs willing to do research at the forefront of nanoscience, bioelectronics and wearable technologies.

Get in touch if you are interested in joining the group:

PhD studentships available via the CDT in Advanced Characterisation of Materials on:
