Costanza L. Manganelli was born in Avellino, Italy, in 1989. She received her masters degree in Physics from the University of Pisa in May 2013. From November 2013 she is a Ph.D. student at Scuola Superiore Sant'Anna. She was a visiting student at Fondazione Bruno Kessler (Trento) and University of Trento where she was involved in a collaboration on optical properties of strained silicon for photonic applications. Since 2012 she has been working on radiative recombination and optical gain in tensile-strained Germanium in collaboration with University of Pisa and on modeling of strain-induced second order non linearities and photonics devices at Scuola Superiore Sant'Anna.
