The research background and expertise of Dr Marini extend over the theoretical modelling of miniaturized
photonic devices, where novel physical mechanisms can be exploited to achieve active functionalities at
micro- and nano-scales. From 2008, Dr Marini has co-authored 43 papers in top-level international journals,
one book chapter, and 17 conference abstracts (with 750 citations and h-index of 16). In particular, Dr
Marini has experience in the theoretical modelling of graphene plasmons, nonlinear dynamics in plasmonic waveguides and metamaterials, supercontinuum generation and dispersive waves in photonic crystal fibers.
