Giorgio De Faveri
Born in Italy in 1981 in Belluno, after primary and secondary school he started to develop an interest in science which reflected in the choice of the high school, a scientifically oriented college. The interest grew with time and it lead in the choice of a degree in chemistry. Five years after, in the wonderful italian city of Trieste, he obtained a degree in organic chemistry. The decision of staying in research by applying for a PhD position came almost natural to him and after applying for a position both in Italy and abroad, one became available in the UK, at Queen Mary (University of London). Hence the decision to move to London in 2007. Over the years spent in London, his interest progressively shifted towards the communication of science rather than laboratory research.
