Silvia Giordani is full Professor Chair of Nanomaterials and Head of School of Chemical Sciences at Dublin City University.  She received her PhD in Chemistry from the University of Miami, USA and carried out postdoctoral research at Trinity College Dublin (TCD), Ireland and at the University of Trieste, Italy.  In 2007 she received the prestigious President of Ireland Young Researcher Award and was a Research Assistant Professor at TCD from 2007 to 2013. In September 2013 she founded the new “Nano Carbon Materials” research lab at the Istituto Italiano di Tecnologia (IIT) and in December 2016 she was appointed Associate Professor in Organic Chemistry at the University of Turin, Italy. Her main research interests are in the design, synthesis, and characterization of a wide range of nanomaterials for applications in smart and responsive bio-related
 nanotechnologies. She has authored over 140 peer-reviewed publications in International journals from 2001 to date, including Chemistry Society Reviews, Nature Nanotechnology, PNAS, Advanced Materials, ACS Nano and J. Am. Chem. Soc. that collectively have received over 8,000 citations and her results have been highlighted in journals such as Science, Nature, and New Scientist. Prof. Giordani has also presented her work at numerous conferences around the world e.g. in United States, Canada, Japan, New Zealand, India, Saudi Arabia, Argentina, Brazil, Chile and across most of Europe. She has served as the thesis/dissertation advisor or mentor to 43 undergraduate, postgraduate and postdoctoral fellows. In 2012 she was awarded the L’Oréal UK & Ireland Fellowship For Women in Science and in 2014 she has been invited to give a “Women in Science” Masterclass at the Royal Irish Academy.  In 2018 she was awarded the William Evans Fellowship from the University of Otago (New Zealand). She is Visiting Scientist to the Bio-Nano Institute at Toyo University (Japan). She is Associate Editor for Beilstein Journal of Nanotechnology https://www.beilstein-journals.org/bjnano/boardMembers/17167343 and for Frontiers in Chemistry - Supramolecular Chemistry. (https://www.frontiersin.org/journals/chemistry/sections/supramolecular-chemistry).

Research Interests

My research interests are in the design, synthesis, and characterization of hybrid smart nanomaterials for biomedical, energy and environmental applications. The research is highly multidisciplinary, since it conjugates competencies coming from different backgrounds, such as organic chemistry, chemical physics, materials engineering, pharmaceutical chemistry and biology.
