Interview: Nanoscale superhero

Abstract:
Francesco Stellacci talks about trying to save the world with nanoscience, Japanese cartoon heroes and being a lab animal. Interview by Anna Roffey.

Francesco Stellacci is a professor at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Cambridge, US, but is about to move to the Swiss Federal Institutes of Technology (EPFL) in Lausanne, Switzerland. His research interests are focused on the study of surface phenomena in supramolecular assemblies, in particular when applied as coatings on nanoscale materials. He is also editor-in-chief at the North American office for Nanoscale.

Do you see environmental nanoscience as a hot area for the future?

Nanoscience started and developed in what were perceived as being the hottest fields, electronics, biology and medicine. And now I think it is now time for it to branch out to many other areas and environmental nanoscience is one of those areas.
