Stefano Vezzoli received his Bachelor (2007) and Master Degree (2009) in Physics from Milan Universita' degli Studi. During his Bachelor and Master he participated in some quantum optics experiments aimed at estimating parameters in noisy environments. In 2010 he started a jointly supervised PhD program between Milan and Paris Universities, working in the prestigious Laboratoire Kastler Brossel. He received his PhD degree in 2013 with a thesis entitled Experimental study of nanocrystals as single photon sources. From October 2013 to July 2015 Dr Vezzoli was a postdoctoral fellow at Nanyang Technological University in Singapore, where he mainly worked at the interface between quantum optics and plasmonics, realising experiments with quantum states of light interacting in artificially designed photonics materials. During his experience in Singapore he also acquired some knowledge of high power femtosecond lasers and related spectroscopic techniques like pump-probe. Since October 2015 he is a research associate at Heriot-Watt University, performing research on quantum properties and turbulence in photon fluids.
