Zelio Fusco

Research Fellow


Numerical and computational mathematics; mathematical physics; materials engineering; photonics; optoelectronics; optical communications; surfaces and structural properties of condensed matter; classical and physical optics; and medical physics.


Dr Fusco’s current research interests focus on the development of theoretical and experimental frameworks for plasmonic- and photonic-assisted catalysis, with particular attention to hot carrier generation, extraction and injection to adjiacient molecules or semiconductors to drive chemical reactions.


Dr Fusco is currently a Research Fellow in the College of Engineering and Computer Science at the Australian National University under the supervision of Dr Fiona Beck.

He received his MSc in Physics with sub-curricula in Radiation and Hadrotherapy from the University of Rome Tor Vergata in collaboration with Center of National Research (CNR). He then moved to ANU where he completed his PhD on the development of complex and disordered photonic materials for sensing applications.

Activities & Awards

Dr Fusco is a member of SPIE (the international society for optics and photonics), the Optical Society, and the IEEE.
