The research activity is mainly aimed at the development and characterization of composite and functionalized polymeric materials with new and / or improved properties. The analytical characterization of the materials using the different techniques available (thermal, spectroscopic, microscopic and chromatographic) allows to evaluate the structure-property correlation of the materials previously prepared by mixing and modification. In research supporting, I also deal with management and technical aspects of environmental issues (waste management), technology transfer activities (activities for third parties) and technical aspects related to the acquisition of goods and services for the laboratory
Diploma in Chemical Expert (1989). Degree in Industrial Chemistry (1996).
Enrolled in the Order of Chemists of Liguria since 1997. Experience in environmental chemistry laboratories (1998-2010), as head of the GC-GC / MS-FT / IR area and then as Laboratory Manager (accredited according to ISO / IEC standard) 17025).
At the CNR since 2010 where he is Head of the thermal analysis (TGA, DSC), chromatographic (HPLC / SEC) and spectroscopic (FT-IR, UV-VIS) sector at the SS of SCITEC-GE (formerly ISMAC). Complex instrumentation management skills for environmental analysis and materials analysis
