Dr. Silvia Varagnolo

I studied at the University of Padova (Italy) from 2007 to 2015, where I gained my MPhys in 2012 and my PhD in Materials Science and Engineering in 2016. In particular, I worked in the Laboratory of Physics of Surfaces and Interfaces (LaFSI), where I focused on the behaviour and control of drop motion on open surfaces.
