Dr. S. De Franceschi is an expert in quantum nanoelectronics. His experimental research focuses on silicon-based quantum spintronics and hybrid superconductor-semiconductor systems. He received his PhD in 1999 at the Scuola Normale Superiore of Pisa and, since 2007, he has a position of staff scientist at CEA-INAC.

In 2005, he was awarded the Kurti European prize for his sustained achievements in the field of quantum transport and, in particular, his works on the Kondo effect in quantum dots and on hybrid normal/superconductor nanostructures. He has obtained several research grants, including a Junior Chair of Excellence Grant from the French Agency for Research (2007-2011), and a European Starting Grant (2012-2017).
