Research interests

I got my Master’s degree in Chemical Engineering at University of Salerno (Italy) with a final thesis titled “Study of adsorption of H2S and H2O on hydrotalcites for SEWG application”. I am currently working on my PhD thesis into the framework of the GreenCarbon project under the supervision of the Prof. J.J. Manyà at the University of Zaragoza in Huesca. My doctoral thesis, titled “Development of novel metallic catalysts on biomorphic BC-based supports for hydrogen production”, is being carried out under the Marie Skłodowska-Curie programme framework.

My research is mainly aimed at the production of advanced materials from biomass-derived carbons for heterogeneous catalysis applications. I started my career studying the suitability of a biomass-derived activated carbon to be employed in the ex situ upgrading of the pyrolysis gas. Then I moved to the investigation of the influence of the operating temperature and pressure on the textural properties of the resulting activated carbons. Currently, I am focusing my work on the production of biochar-based metal catalysts to be employed in steam reforming of pyrolysis vapours and in methane production from CO2 and H2.
