Mauro received his PhD in early 2016 at the University of Florence working with Roberta Sessoli on the magnetic anisotropy of lanthanide complexes investigated using cantilever torque magnetometry. He then moved to the University of Stuttgart (tutor: Prof. Joris van Slageren), dealing with spectroscopic measurements on actinides and lanthanides. He became assistant professor at the University of Copenhagen (Inorganic section, head: Prof. Jesper Bendix) in 2017, where he mainly focused his research on inelastic neutron scattering and modelling of magnetic anisotropy of f-elements. Since the beginning of 2020, he is Research Associate at the University of Florence. He teaches general chemistry for bachelor students in natural sciences and molecular magnetism for chemistry students.
