Born in 1979, Elisabetta Collini obtained her BSc and PhD degrees in Chemistry at the University of Padova (Italy) where she is presently Associate Professor and PI of the ERC Starting Grant QUENTRHEL. She is also involved in two Collaborative projects funded by EU, in which she serves as Local Coordinator. Her main research interests are focused on the study and characterization of nonlinear properties and excited state dynamics of multichromophoric systems with particular attention to energy transfer processes. Her research activity, proved by several papers published in high impact journals, was recently awarded with national and international awards (“G. Borgia” prize in Chemistry from the Accademia Nazionale dei Lincei; “Donne Talento ed Innovazione” prize from the M. Bellisario Foundation; “P. Levi” prize in Chemistry from the Italian Chemistry Society; European Young Chemist Award 2012 (gold medal) from EuChem, “M.B. Ceolin” prize from the University of Padova).
