**Associate Professor of Theoretical Condensed Matter Physics**at The University of L'Aquila, Italy.Theoretical physicist fond of Nonlinear Nanophotonics

**Short bio**Prof Marini made his first steps in research in 2008 during the final year of the Master Degree in Physics of Condensed Matter at the University of L'Aquila, Italy. After joining in October 2008 the Centre for Photonics and Photonic materials at the University of Bath, United Kingdom, he achieved his PhD in Photonics in November 2011. He led postdoctoral research at the Max Planck Institute for the Science of Light (2011-2014) in Erlangen, Germany, and at ICFO - The Institute of Photonic Sciences (2014-2017) in Castelldefels, Spain. In his career he has been awarded two Marie Curie Postdoctoral Fellowships and a ''Rita Levi Montalcini'' Assistant Professorship funded by the Italian Ministry of Education and Research. From December 2017 to November 2020 he was appointed as Assistant Professor and currently he is an Associate Professor of Theoretical Condensed Matter Physics at The University of L'Aquila, Italy.

*Man is something that shall be overcome. You have made your way from worm to man, and much in you is still worm.*The research background and expertise of Prof Marini extend over the theoretical modeling of miniaturized photonic devices, where novel physical mechanisms can be exploited to achieve active functionalities at micro- and nano-scales. From 2008, Dr Marini has co-authored 47 papers in top-level international journals, one book chapter, and 23 conference abstracts/proceedings (with ~ 1000 citations and h-index of 19). In particular, Prof Marini has experience in the theoretical modelling of graphene plasmons, ultrafast and nonlinear dynamics of electrons in metals, semiconductors, and two-dimensional materials, nonlinear dynamics in plasmonic waveguides and metamaterials, supercontinuum generation and dispersive waves in photonic crystal fibers.

Nonlinear Plasmonics

Theoretical modeling of nonlinear dynamics in metal-based plasmonic structures:

- ultrafast response

- self-organization and solitons

- harmonic generation

- out-of-equilibrium nanophotonics

Near-zero-index media

Theoretical modeling of nonlinear dynamics in transparent conductors, plasmas, and artificially engineered epsilon-near-zero metamaterials:

- transient trapping of slow light

- self-organization of frozen waves

- harmonic generation

- all-optical control and modulation

- optical vortices

Random metamaterials

Theoretical modeling of amplification and cavity-free lasing in random metamaterials:

- single-mode random meta-lasers

- mode-locked random meta-lasers

Two-dimensional media

Theoretical modeling of the nonlinear optical response of 2D crystals:

**Graphene**:- saturable absorption

- harmonic generation

- graphene plasmons

- plasmon-enhanced high-harmonic generation

- plasmon-based molecular sensing

**Transition metal dichalcogenides**:- second- and third-harmonic generation

- parametric down-conversion

- phase-matching free parametric oscillation
