University of Salerno, Italy
She graduated in Chemical Engineering, summa cum laude in 2011 at the University of Salerno discussing a thesis concerning the “Production of polymeric membranes by supercritical phase separation for active packaging applications”; then, at the same University, she gained the PhD degree in Chemical Engineering in 2015, with a thesis on “Green processes based on SC-CO2: application to materials of biomedical interest” with an outstanding judgment. She obtained a research fellowship at the Department of Industrial Engineering, University of Salerno. In 2016 she won the national AWARD of the Associazione Italiana Di Ingegneria Chimica (AIDIC) for the best PhD thesis of the year. Her research activity is related to the production of smart loaded membranes and biopolymeric nanostructured scaffolds using supercritical carbon dioxide for food, pharmaceutical and biomedical applications. Moreover, she has been co-advisor for various thesis in Chemical Engineering. She published over 20 papers on international journals, related to nanomaterials, and 2 chapters of international books. She was also author of a patent PCT/IB2014/066424 “Antimicrobically active packaging, antimicrobically active membrane for packaging and related uses”.
