Martino Poggio received his B.A. in physics from Harvard University in 2000 and his Ph.D. from the University of California, Santa Barbara in 2005. In graduate school he worked for Prof. David Awschalom on ultrafast optics and semiconductor spintronics. After receiving his doctorate, he started work as a post-doctoral fellow at the Center for Probing the Nanoscale, a joint center between Stanford University and IBM Corporation funded by the National Science Foundation. Until late 2008 he worked in this capacity in Dr. Dan Rugar’s lab at the IBM Almaden Research Center in San Jose, CA on high sensitivity nuclear magnetic resonance force microscopy. In January of 2009, he started work as Argovia Assistant Professor in the Department of Physics at the University of Basel. In 2014, he was promoted to Associate Professor. Prof. Poggio is a winner of a 2013 ERC Starting Grant and a member of the American Physical Society. His citation statistics can be found on ResearcherID (Web of Science) or Google Scholar.
