Maurizio Artoni received his laurea degree from the University of Parma (Italy) and his PhD in condensed matter theoretical physics from the City University of New York in 1991.
He was a National Academy of Science Fellow from 1991 to 1993 working at the Photonics Division of The Goddard Space Flight Center (NASA) in Washington. From 1993 to 1998 he was a Research Officer at the City University of New York and at the University of Essex (England).
He spent the years 1998-2002 at the European Laboratory for Non-Linear Spectroscopy in Florence and he is now Associate Professor of Physics at the University of Brescia (Italy). Following his PhD he has been awarded several prices from the United States National Academy of Science and from the European Community.
His research interests up to date include physics of ultracold atoms, quantum optics and quantum coherence effects in semiconductors. He has published over sixty original papers along with several review articles on the subject of these fields of research and given about 15 invited talks at conferences mainly in the areas of quantum optics and quantum coherence effects.
