Maila Danielis is a  researcher (RTDA) at the University of Udine in the Catalysis for Energy and Environment Group. Her Master’s and PhD theses were developed focusing on methane abatement catalysts for automotive exhaust gas aftertreatment applications. Starting from her PhD she has been developing an ongoing collaboration with the Catalysis: Reactivity and Structure (CRS) Group of Brookhaven National Laboratory (BNL) in Upton, NY, and she worked closely with several industrial partners. Her interests lie in heterogeneous catalytic applications for air pollution abatement and for the valorization of small waste molecules into higher value feedstock, and in the simultaneous improvement of the sustainability of employed catalysts preparation routes.
