After completing the Material Engineering studies in 2004, Francesca decided to pursue the Academic career by undertaking a PhD in Material Science and Engineering, with main focus on nano and bio technologies. In parallel established a 5 years collaboration with the Dentistry Department in order to increase the knowledge and awareness about dental materials in this sector.
In 2008 decided to leave the Academic path to jump into the entrepreneurial adventure and joining full-time the start-up Genefinity, a spin-off of the University of Trieste, which she founded in 2005 together with 3 other PhD colleagues. The company grew successfully for about 10 years by developing specific competences on thin films depositions, mainly PVD and ALD techniques, with main markets biomedical, food, solar and cosmetic.
In 2016, decided to jump into a new adventure and joined Applied Materials Italy as Business Developer, with the main target to expand the current solar market to other sector of the printed electronics.

I've spent my entire 20+ year career working on many of the technical aspects of printable electronically functional materials, 'printed electronics', and additive manufacture of flexible hybrid electronic devices. I have extensive experience in chemical precipitation synthesis of metallic nanoparticles, colloid and dispersion stabilization methods, and formulation of printable functional ‘inks’ for electronics applications. I'm also proficient in conventional and direct write printing methods, flash lamp curing, and other processing technologies for additive manufacture of 2D flexible and 3D hybrid electronics. Although primarily serving technical roles related to these technologies in title, I have spent a significant portion of my time doing business development related activities over the past decade as well.
