Electron Microscopy for Materials Science University of Antwerp, Belgium
Stefano Canossa was born in Mantova, Italy in 1986. After completing his studies in
Materials Chemistry at the University of Parma in 2014, he received his PhD in Chemistry
at the same university under the guidance of Prof. Alessia Bacchi and Prof Giovanni
Predieri, focussing on the crystallographic analysis of metal-organic frameworks (MOFs)
and their structural disorder by total scattering diffraction techniques. After graduating
in March 2018, he moved to the Netherlands to work as a postdoc at TU Delft (Dr. Monique
Van der Veen group, Dept. of Chemical Engineering) on the crystal engineering and
structural analysis of MOFs for electronic applications.
In July 2019 he has been awarded his current FWO individual fellowship to work in
the University of Antwerp (Prof. Joke Hadermann’s group, EMAT, Department of Physics),
with a project focusing on the development of electron total scattering analysis for
the combined determination of average structure and correlated disorder in framework
Along with his enthusiasm for the crystallography of complex crystalline systems,
he is passionately committed to science communication and educational initiatives.
His main professional goals are to push forward the development of single-crystal
total-scattering techniques and to spread this practice among researchers of any level
of experience in order to make this crucial crystallographic analysis more available
to the Materials Science community.
