Marco Sebastiani

Tenured assistant professor of Materials Science and Editor of Materials & Design

Marco Sebastiani received a Ph.D. in mechanical and industrial engineering in 2008 from Roma TRE University, working on the development of novel nanostructured and multilayered coatings for advanced mechanical applications.

He is currently a tenured assistant professor of Materials Science at “Roma TRE” university, where he is also a lecturer of materials science and technology for aeronautical engineering.

Currently, his major research efforts are in the fields of surface engineering, micro-device development, thin films and small-scale mechanical behavior, with specific focus on:

– Micron-scale residual stress analysis by a focused ion beam (FIB) approach.
– Nano-mechanical characterization of advanced materials and devices by the use of nanoindentation testing
– Nanostructured thin film modeling and production by Physical vapor Deposition (PVD) processes.

He is editor of the international peer reviewed journal Materials & Design (IF 3.997), reviewer for a wide range of international journals, and participant in European and national R&D project (among which, the role of coordinator of the FP7 large collaborative project iSTRESS,

Since 2014, he is actively involved in the most important European actions for promoting the access to advanced materials characterization tools for the manufacturing industry. In particular, he is member of the Operational Management Board at the European Materials Characterization Council (EMCC).

His main research activities are focused on the development of novel thin film technologies and characterization methodologies for micro and nano-mechanical testing in advanced materials. He is co-author of more than 70 papers on ISI journals, with over 800 citations and an h-index of 15 (link).
