Giovanni Piero Pepe. Education: Physics Degree at University of Napoli Federico II (1988). Visiting Scientist at Electrotechnical Laboratories, Tsukuba Japan (1995) and Rochester Unversity NY, USA in 2005. He is Full Professor University of Napoli Federico II since 2019 (habilitation in 2015) after being Assistant and Associate Professor at the same University. He is President of European Society for Applied Superconductivity - ESAS (from 2020 to present). Moreover, he is Scientific Coordinator of the Task Force of University of Naples Federico II on Blue Italian Growth and delegate to the “Technological Transfer and Third Mission” of University of Naples Federico II, He is Scientific Coordinator of the “House of Emergent Technologies” of Matera, Italy, and Senior Member of the IEEE from 2019.

His scientific interests fall in the field of weak superconductivity (from tunnel spectroscopy to proximity effect, Josephson effect and Macroscopic Quantum Tunneling phenomena in moderately damped systems), superconducting qubits, new routes for the realization of superconducting qubits, Superconducting Single Photon Detectors for Quantum Communication, non-equilibrium superconductivity also in unconventional materials, advanced superconducting materials for quantum applications.

He is Scientific Coordinator of the Project “Development of quantum systems and technologies for cybersecurity in communication networks”, Italian Ministery of University and Research (2021-2023).

GPP is author of >170 publications on international journals and book chapters. He has given many invited talks at international conferences and research institutes.
