Luca Bindi

Brief Bio

Luca Bindi holds the Chair of Mineralogy and Crystallography and is currently the Head of the Department of Earth Sciences of the University of Florence, Italy. He is also a research associate at the Istituto di Geoscienze e Georisorse of the National Research Council (Italy) (CNR). He has received national and international scientific awards that include the President of the Republic Prize 2015 of the National Academy of Lincei (Video of Ceremony). He discovered natural quasicrystals in 2009, showing that they can form spontaneously in nature and remain stable for geological times. Since 2019, he is a member of the Academy of Lincei.
