Fabio Ronci received in 1995 the master degree in Chemistry at the University of Rome “La Sapienza”, discussing a thesis titled “Study of anodic materials for lithium-ion batteries”, supervisors Dr. Fausto Croce and Prof. Bruno Scrosati. In the same University he received in 2001 the doctoral degree in Materials Science, discussing a thesis titled “Synthesis and characterization of cobalt- and iron-substituted lithium nickel oxides”, supervisor Prof. Bruno Scrosati.
- February – March 1996: Researcher at ENEA in Rome where he carried out research on the electrochemical properties of materials for Molten Carbonate Fuel Cells (MCFC).
- May 1996 – June 1998: Research Fellowship in Prof. Scrosati’s group at the University of Rome “La Sapienza” for the study of electrodic and electrolyte materials for lithium polymer batteries.
- March 2000: Guest Researcher at the Osaka National Research Institute (ONRI), Ikeda, Osaka, Japan, where he worked on the structural study of cathodic materials.
- April 2000-December 2001: Researcher at the Chemistry Department of the University of Rome “La Sapienza” with a two-years Research Grant on “Synthesis and Characterization of Electrode Materials for Batteries”.
- May-July 2001: post doctoral position at the City University of New York (USA).
- December 2001 – present time: Researcher at Istituto di Struttura della Materia (CNR) on Surface Physics, studying particularly the structural and electronic properties of interfaces and nanostructures obtained by depositing inorganic or organic material on clean surfaces of semiconductor or metallic substrates in Ultra High Vacuum (UHV) using the Scanning Tunneling Microscopy (STM) technique.
He is author of more than 65 peer-reviewed scientific publications, >2000 citations, h-index: 21 (ISI-WoS), 23 (Google Scholar) and several oral presentations and 6 invited talks at international conferences.
