Department of Chemistry
University of Milano
Born in 1974, in 1998 she graduated summa cum laude in Industrial Chemistry at Università degli Studi di Milano and in 2001 she got a PhD in Industrial Chemistry, awarded by the same University. She is presently attending the Master of Science course in Chemical Engineering at Politecnico di Milano as second graduation. Presently she is Associate Professor of Chemical Industrial Plants at the Dept of Chemistry of the University of Milano. She has been responsible of research contracts on behalf of important industries and she is afferent to the National Consortium for Materials Science and Technology (INSTM) and to the Centre for Nanostructured Materials and Interfaces (CIMAINA). She is associated to the National Research Council (CNR-ISTM) since 2009. The results of her activity have been summarised in 12 invited reviews, 75 papers on international journals with high impact factor, more than 105 congress presentations and 5 invited lectures. She is co-author of the book “Fenomeni di trasporto”, printed in 2009 by an Italian Editor (Ed. Cortina) and guest editor of a special issue on process design for biorefineries. Her h-index is 24, with overall 1555 citations.
Her research interests are mainly focused on heterogeneous catalytic and photocatalytic processes, on process simulation and kinetic modelling and on the synthesis of nanostructured materials. Some of the topics studied are: a) ammonia synthesis and decomposition; b) catalytic flameless combustion of hydrocarbons; c) selective oxidation of aromatic compounds; d) ethylbenzene dehydrogenation to styrene; e) oxidative dehydrogenation of light alkanes to olefins; f) microporous materials for H2 storage; g) development of getters for water entrapment; h) kinetic modelling of the hydrocracking of long chain linear paraffins (C10, C16, C28, C36); i) flame pyrolysis synthesis of oxide nanomaterials; l) glycerol valorisation by selective oxidation in liquid phase. She is presently involved in a Departmental project for heat and power cogeneration with fuel cells, from second generation bioethanol. She is presently investigating materials and processes for the photoproduction of H2, for the high pressure photoreduction of CO2 and for H2 production by photoreforming of organic waste compounds in water.
