He is based within WCPC and his research is focussed on advanced manufacturing by functional printing and additive processing for energy storage, electronic and biomedical applications; as well as the study of underlining complex fluids rheology.

Davide is currently PI for an EPSRC award (£450,000) for advanced large-scale energy storage (EP/N013727/1). Further recent projects include an EPSRC first grant on surface instabilities in roll-to-roll printing (EP/M008827/1, 2016), EPSRC CimLAE funded Pathfinder project on laser induced forward transfer  (SIMLIFT, 2017).

Davide has recently participated as investigator to the HaRFest project (2016), an Innovate UK co-funded collaborative project, in collaboration with PragmatIC, CPI, Cambridge University, CimLAE, aimed to investigate scale production of energy harvesting modules.

As investigator, Davide has also been named in more than 10 projects, including NIHR funded project for printed diagnostic devices for human cytomegalovirus in newborn babies. Davide’s research has led to patents and a number of publications in leading international journals.
