Biographical Sketch

Researcher at CNR-ITM since 2000, degree in Organic Chemistry.She participated in various research projects funded by the EU, MIUR, CNR and private companies in the field of membrane preparation and characterization. Author of patent in Italy, Europe, United States and Japan. She is co-author of many scientific papers published in scientific journals, book chapters, various invited lectures and various contributions at scientific conferences on membrane science. 


Main fields of research:

  • Preparation of dense and microporous polymeric membraneswith phase inversion
  • Characterization of polymeric membranes (Water permeability, contact angle measurements, SEM)
  • Morphological study of membrane surfaces with AFM, surface roughness and porosity analysis
  • Study of new materials for membrane preparation
  • Design of new membranes with controlled structure and morphology
