Dr. Matteo Seita is an Assistant Professor in the School of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering, the School of Materials Science and Engineering, and the Asian School of the Environment. He holds a Master’s Degree in Nanotechnology for Integrated Systems, which was jointly awarded by Politecnico di Torino, Grenoble INP (France), and EPFL (Switzerland). In 2012 he graduated from ETH Zürich with a PhD in Materials Science, which was focused on microstructure control of metal films through ion-irradiation. In 2013 he joined the Department of Materials Science and Engineering at MIT (USA) as a postdoctoral associate. At MIT, he collaborated with different professors on a number of fundamental and applied projects aimed at investigating structure-property relationships of grain boundaries in metallic materials. In October 2016 he started his appointment at NTU and In January 2018 he was awarded the Singapore National Research Foundation (NRF) Fellowship, a $3 Million individual research grant for early career scientists.
