Giulia received her Master’s degree in physics from the University of Milan, Italy, in 2011, with a thesis on the implantation of metal clusters in electroluminescent polymers for use in OLED devices. She then completed her PhD studies on the investigation of nanostructures on surfaces using scanning tunnelling microscopy in the group of Professor Harald Brune at the École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne, Switzerland. Giulia joined Springer Nature in October 2015 for the launch of Nature Reviews Materials. She spent 2018 heading up the launch team of Nature Reviews Physics. Since January 2022, she is the Chief Editor of Nature Reviews Materials.
Giulia is primarily responsible for the areas of quantum materials, superconductivity, topological materials, 2D materials, metamaterials and structural materials.
