Roberta Zambrini
Brief vitae

Roberta Zambrini graduated in Physics at the Universitá degli Studi (Milan, Italy) in 1999 with a Master Thesis supervised by Prof. Lugiato. In 2003 she obtained the PhD in Physics at the Universitat de les Illes Balears (Palma de Mallorca, Spain) under the supervision of Prof. San Miguel. Between 2003 and 2006 she worked at the Department of Physics of the University of Strathclyde (Glasgow, UK) in Prof. Barnett group. In 2006 she was awarded a Ramon y Cajal fellowship and from 2008 she is tenured researcher ("Cientifico Titular") of the Spanish research council CSIC at IFISC (Spain).
