Marco Lattuada was born in Cittiglio (VA), Italy. He obtained his Master's degree in Chemical Engineering (laurea in Ingegneria Chimica) from Politecnico di Milano with full marks and honors in 1998. He then joined the group of Prof. Massimo Morbidelli at ETH Zurich for his PhD, which he completed in 2003. His doctoral work focused on the aggregation and gelation behavior of polymer colloids and was awarded with the ETH medal for outstanding doctoral thesis. He then carried out a two-year post-doctoral work at MIT in the group of Prof. Alan Hatton, where he worked on the preparation of magnetic Janus nanoparticles. In 2006 he joined the group of Prof. Morbidelli again, this time as a senior scientist, where he also started two independent projects. The first one aimed to create materials with nano- and micro-structure controlled by means of magnetic fields, while the second project focused on modeling clusters breakage and restructuring under the application of shear forces. In 2011 he obtained a SNSF professorship, and he joined AMI in January 2012, where he currently leads the Nanoparticles Self-Assembly group.
