Andrea Fiore graduated in Electrical Engineering (1994) and in Physics (1996) at University of Rome "La Sapienza". From 1994 to 1997 he carried out his PhD thesis on nonlinear frequency conversion in semiconductor waveguides at Thomson CSF Central Research Laboratory (Orsay, France). He then held postdoctoral appointments at University of California at Santa Barbara (1997-98) and at the Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (1998-2001), and a researcher position at the Italian National Research Council (2001-2002). From 2002 to 2007, he has led the activity on Quantum Devices at the Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne as assistant professor. Since October 2007, he holds the Chair of Nanophotonics at the Eindhoven University of Technology. Prof. Fiore has been the recipient of the “Professeur boursier” (Switzerland) and “Vici” (The Netherlands) personal grants, principal investigator in several national projects, team leader in six EU projects, coordinator of EU-FP6 project “SINPHONIA” and of the Dutch FOM national program "Nanoscale Quantum Optics". He has been awarded the 2006 ISCS "Young Scientist" Award (International Symposium on Compound Semiconductors). He has coauthored over 150 journal articles and given around 50 invited talks at international conferences.
