Michele Scaravilli was born in Caserta, Italy, on December 9, 1988.
He received his M.E. degree in Electrical Engineering (summa cum laude) from the
“Federico II” University of Naples, Italy, with a thesis project
dealing with the design and optimization of an anti-intrusion microwave sensor based on a
parallel-plate waveguide with deformable walls. In 2018, he received the Ph.D. degree in Information Technologies for
University of Sannio, Benevento, Italy, defending a thesis on Bloch‐surface‐wave assisted lab‐on‐fiber optrodes,
supervised by Profs. Vincenzo Galdi
and Andrea Cusano.
He is currently working as a postdoctoral researcher in the Optoelectronic Division
and the Fields & Waves Lab at the University of Sannio.
His research activity is focused on the design, numerical modeling and fabrication of novel
label-free optical fiber nanoprobes based on the excitation of Bloch surface waves, as well as SERS probes.
More generally, his scientific interests include: plasmonics, photonic crystals, bio-photonics and optical fiber sensors.
