Wasserman Prize 2021

My doctoral thesis work has been recognised with the Wasserman Award 2021 for innovative and high-level research in the field of new materials, and in particular for for charting the topological properties of all exfoliable non-magnetic materials, identifying 2D jacutingaite as the first example of a Kane-Mele quantum spin Hall insulator, and 3D jacutingaite as a dual-topology material - a prediction later confirmed by experiments. This is the third recognition for my PhD work at EPFL, following the SAIS prize 2021 for the best STEM PhD 2021 among Italian-speaking doctoral students in Switzerland and the 2020 EPFL Doctoral Program Thesis Distinction awarded to the 8% best PhD students of each EPFL doctoral school every year.
