Daniel Lizzit received the Ph.D. degree in Electronic Engineering from the University of Udine, Italy, in 2016 where he worked on the modelling of electron transport in nanoscale MOS transistors with silicon and III-V semiconductors channels. In 2017, he joined the Italian Synchrotron (Elettra Sincrotrone Trieste) where he mainly worked on the growth, structural and electronic characterization of 2D and quasi-2D materials like Graphene and Transition Metal Dichalcogenides grown on different substrates. Since 2020 he is Research Associate at the Polytechnic Department of Engineering and Architecture of the University of Udine (DPIA) and his current research interests include ferroelectric materials for neuromorphic computing applications, and the modelling of metal-2D-semiconductor contacts.

He is author/coauthor of more than 50 international papers and serves as a reviewer for several international journals.
