Caterina Vozzi is the director of the Istituto di Fotonica e Nanotecnologie (IFN) of the Consiglio Nazionale delle Ricerche (CNR).

She leads the Ultrafast dynamics in matter group (UDynI) at IFN. She obtained a Ph.D. in Physics from Università Degli Studi di Milano in 2005. In 2010 she spent 9 months as a visiting scientist in the group of Prof. Paul Corkum at the Steacie Institute for Molecular Sciences of the National Research Council of Canada in Ottawa. In 2012 Caterina Vozzi has been awarded a European Starting Research Grant with the project “Ultrafast Dynamics of complex molecules”.

Her current research interests focus on high-order harmonic spectroscopy for the study of ultrafast dynamics in molecules and solids,  ultrafast soft-X transient absorption and reflectivity spectroscopy for the study of materials, development of attosecond spectroscopy and photochemistry in the water window spectral range for the study of molecules (based on table-top and FEL sources), and ultrafast THz spectroscopy.

She is Associate Editor for OSA Continuum; Topical Editor on Nonlinear and ultrafast optics for the Journal of Optics (IoP) and Section Editor for Optical and Laser Physics at the Journal of Physics B: Atomic, Molecular and Optical Physics (IoP). From 2005 to 2017 Dr. Vozzi has been contracted professor of Physics at Politecnico di Milano, teaching physics courses in Mechanics and Electromagnetism at the Biomedical Engineering School.
