Prof. Massimo Del Bubba is author of 120 papers published in "peer reviewed" international journals indexed on Scopus that have received about 3400 citations, achieving an H-index of 31.
Prof. Del Bubba has a long experience in the development of analytical methods based on chromatography coupled to mass spectrometry and in the study of wastewater treatment technologies, including constructed wetlands, for the removal of nutrients, as well as inorganic and organic micropollutants. As principal investigator, he is currently carrying out research activities on the recycling of sludge from wastewater treatment plants for the synthesis of biochars and their use as sorbents in biological filters and constructed wetlands. Furthermore, he has a deep expertise in the analysis of fruit quality in terms of contents of primary and secondary metabolites, important for human nutrition and health protection. Recently, he has investigated the transfer of organic micropollutants of industrial origin to food crops, from treated industrial-domestic wastewater used for irrigation. He has been manager of research unit or principal investigator in several national and international projects concerning the issues of environmental sciences and food chemistry; he has been also scientific manager in numerous research assignments entrusted by companies, obtaining fundings for a total amount of about 1.7 million euros.
