Short biography: Enzo Di Fabrizio is a full professor at PSE Division of KAUST since March 2013. In Italy, he is a full professor of Physics (since March 2013 on leave of absence) (MIUR SSD FIS/01 – website of Italian Ministry of University and Research) at the University Magna Graecia in Catanzaro (, where he taught courses on general physics, nanotechnology and biophotonics. Moreover, he is founder and director of BIONEM (Bio and Nano engineering for Medicine) laboratory (
Since 2007 visiting Professor at IUSS (University Institute of Advanced Study) in Pavia (
Since July 1th 2009, he became director of Nanostructures Department of Italian Institute of Technology (IIT) in Genoa head quarter via Morego 30 (

He is in the editorial board of different international scientific journal:
1. Journal of Optic A (
2. Frontiers in Nanobiotechnology (
3. Review Editor in Condensed Matter Physics, part of the journal(s) Frontiers in Physics.

In 2011 he was appointed as a member of ANVUR -National Agency for the Evaluation of Universities and Research Institutes- (

  • Di Fabrizio has published more than 450 papers in international journals, H factor of 54,
    i-10 index=225 and a total number of citation more than 11000.
  • Contributed with chapters to 25 books

He is also the inventor of more than 10 international patents, two of them are registered at KAUST.

Research interests: Professor Di Fabrizio conducts an interdisciplinary activity between physics and biology that includes basic and applied research in nanotechnology. His main interests concern: design and nanofabrication of advanced plasmonic, semiconductor and magnetic devices and materials, optical tweezers based microscopy (applied to biophysics and nanomedicine), Raman spectroscopy for single molecules detection, design and fabrication of nano-devices dedicated to drug delivery, proteomics and single molecule detection, and biophotonic (including photonic
crystal and plasmonic-based devices).


The NANOP 2017 Scientific Committee is composed of experienced Professors and Doctors who are in charge of assessing the submitted papers based on the peer review method.
