Associate Professor at University of Udine, Polytechnic Department of Engineering and Architecture from 2014. Graduated in Chemistry at University of Padova PhD degree at the University of Udine in Chemical and Innovative Materials. Before joining the Catalysis Group she did research abroad and in Italy with different fellowships, currently it is responsible of the Catalysis for Energy research line of the group. She has more than 20 years of experience in the field of rare earth oxides and their applications in catalysis and electrochemistry for energy systems and H2 production. She is publishing on peered international journals in the field of materials sciences chemical engineering and chemical sciences. Her studies are addressed to the chemical-physical and functional characterisation of non-stoichiometric rare earth oxides and transition metals. The main aim is the understanding of the mechanisms behind catalytic and electrocatalytic performance of these materials in the energy technologies with special regard to fuel cells and electrolysers. Other research interest are renewable resources, catalytic processes and materials for a green economy, CO2 and CH4 valorization.
