With about 74,000 students and about 3,700 academic and administrative staff, the University of Torino (UniTo) in north-west Italy is one of the country's largest and most prestigious universities.
The university, founded in 1404, provides quality higher education and research opportunities; many UniTo graduates have achieved international renown.
Today, the University of Torino offers over 150 undergraduate and graduate degree programs in almost every field of study. A growing number of programs are taught in English, and Italian language tuition is available for incoming students.
The University's 27 departments offer excellent opportunities for Italian and non-Italian academic staff; doctoral school provides more than 30 doctoral programs.
Born in Turin (Italy) in 1969, in 1993 she got the Degree in Chemistry (Magna cum Laude), and the qualification to practice as a chemist (100/100). She got the PhD title in Chemical Sciences in 1998. She has integrated her competences with research periods abroad (USA, Japan, Hungary).
From 1999 to 2000 she was a post-doc researcher at the Department of Chemistry of the University of Turin (Italy) and up to 2011 a highly specialized technician at the same department.
Since 2011 she has been associate professor at the Department of Chemistry of the University of Turin (Italy) in the academic discipline “Chemistry for the Environment and for Cultural Heritage” where she is class teacher of the courses:
- Instrumental Analytical Chemistry with laboratory (Bachelor Degree in Chemistry)
- Treatment of sewage and waste (Master Degree in Environmental Chemistry)
- Chemical Risk (Master Degree in Environmental Biology)
- Environmental Chemistry (Master degree in Science and Sustainable Management of Natural Systems)
Her scientific activities are related to the following environmental-analytical topics:
- Determination of emerging and priority pollutants by GC-MS and LC-MS/MS methods specifically derived for selected matrices (waters, soils, sediments, zooplankton, food, oils).
- Development of innovative sample pre-treatment approaches (QuEChERS) for environmental and food samples.
- Purifications of waters intended for human consumption from inorganic and organic pollutants through innovative (silica based mesoporous and ceramic substrates) and low costs (biochars) adsorbents.
She is the head of a research group (https://www.chimica.unito.it/do/gruppi.pl/Show?_id=sx7t) composed of one associate professor, three PhD students and two post-docs. The group has relevant expertise on analytical/environmental methodologies for micropollutant determination and removal by adsorption and photocatalytic degradation.
She is the head of research unit for 15 financed projects of national and international relevance. Only the most recent are hereafter listed:
- CARITRO call (2015-2017): Polymer-derived ceramics with hierarchical porosity for water filtration/purification.
- ERANETMED call (2016-2019): IRRIGATIO: Assessing the chemical/microbiological contamination and productivity in the agricultural production chain of model fruit species grown under irrigation with different kinds of reclaimed wastewater.
- POR FESR 2014/2020. (2019-2021): BIOENPRO4TO. Bioenergy and sustainable products of Green Chemistry (output) from the integrated valorization of urban, industrial, biomass and wastewater (inputs), through intelligent modules
- Society of Water Management in Turin, Italy (2017-2019): Haloacetic acids in waters intended for human consumption: their analytical determination and their affinity for biochar substrates.
- PRIN2017, IT Ministry of University (2019-2022). Nanostructured ceramics for environmental and energy applications
- 2019 JOINT CALL OF THE ERA-NET COFUND ON FOOD SYSTEMS AND CLIMATE (2021-2024). SECUREFOOD2050: Improving resilience and food security in 2050 climate through soilless precise agricultural techniques and irrigation with wastewater properly treated by innovative technologies to ensure food safety
