Biographical Sketch: 

He graduated in Chemical Engineering in 1995, received his PhD in Chemical Technologies and New Materials in 1999 at the University of Calabria. He is a researcher since 2000 and has more than 25 years of experience in the field of gas separation with membranes, mainly polymeric, also as mixed matrix, in flat and hollow fiber form, taking care of aspects of preparation and characterization. By virtue of a consolidated background in the analysis of chemical processes, modelling, sizing and integration of membrane systems in production cycles, he has collaborated in several national and European research projects, participating in numerous international conferences. He is co-author of over 70 papers in international scientific journals and is also reviewer for some of them. During his research activity, he spent several periods abroad (USA, Belgium, Czech Republic) helping to develop collaborations with foreign research institutions.

Main fields of research:

  • Preparation and characterization of polymeric membranes in flat and hollow fiber form with symmetrical, asymmetric and composite morphology, determination and evaluation of their transport properties for gases and vapors.

  • Study and interpretation of transport phenomena in homogeneous and heterogeneous (composite) polymer matrix systems.

  • Analysis and sizing of membrane units for the separation and purification of gas mixtures within integrated processes of industrial interest.
