About the Serial Volume Editors

Davide Moscatelli

Davide Moscatelli
Davide Moscatelli received his Laurea cum laude in Chemical Engineering at the Politecnico di Milano in 2002, and his PhD in Chemical Engineering in 2006. He is full professor of Applied Physical Chemistry at Politecnico di Milano and he collaborates with ETH Zurich since 2007. His main research interests are in the material synthesis for technological applications, with particular emphasis on polymer materials, nanomaterials and chemical compounds for biomedical and oil&gas applications. The general aim of his research is the development of new approaches to synthesize and functionalize innovative, efficient, and tunable smart materials. Davide Moscatelli is co-author of more than 120 papers on international journals and more than 10 patents. H-index: 26. Davide Moscatelli serves as lecturer of Petroleum Technologies and Refining Processes course at Politecnico di Milano. Davide Moscatelli supervised more than 100 Bachelor thesis students in Chemical Engineering, more than 100 Master thesis students in Chemical Engineering and Material Engineering, and more than 10 PhD theses in Industrial Chemistry and Chemical Engineering. He is ViceDirector of the PhD course of Industrial Chemistry and Chemical Engineering at Politecnico di Milano (http://phd.chem.polimi.it/staff/) and, since 2017, he is Member of the Faculty Committee for the strategic plan Polimi2040 at Politecnico di Milano. Davide Moscatelli is a member of the editorial board and advisory panel of several international scientific journals. He is co-founder of Captive Systems srl, a spin-off company of Politecnico di Milano active in use of smart nanomaterials for wastewater treatments.

Matteo Pelucchi

Matteo Pelucchi received his MSc cum laude in Chemical Engineering in 2013 and his PhD cum laude in Industrial Chemistry and Chemical Engineering in 2017, both at Politecnico di Milano. After an experience at Argonne National Laboratory, USA and at National University of Ireland, Galway he is currently appointed as tenure-track Assistant Professor at Politecnico di Milano. His main research interests include the pyrolysis and combustion chemistry, chemical recycling of solid plastic wastes, carbon nanoparticles and carbon materials synthesis and pollutants formation chemistry. During his career, Matteo gained expertise in the both experimental and modelling approaches to high temperature chemistry of reactive flows, with specific focus on quantum chemistry calculations and detailed chemical kinetic models development. It is in this context that in 2013 Matteo was appointed as a visiting graduate researcher at the Chemical Science and Engineering division at Argonne National Laboratory, in the group of Dr. Stephen Klippenstein, where he became expert in theoretical kinetics. Matteo Pelucchi is currently involved in a number of EU funded research projects (H2020 and Horizon Europe) and industrial collaborations of the CRECK Modeling Lab at Politecnico di Milano. Matteo track record reports >50 scientific papers (including three book chapters) on international peer-reviewed journals and >40 contributions to international conferences and symposia (including two invited lectures). Matteo is lecturer of “Dynamics and Control of Chemical Processes” in the MSc program in Chemical Engineering and of “Chemical Engineering Project Laboratory” in the BSc program in Chemical Engineering at Politecnico di Milano. He is also member of the Permanent Committee and Head of the Communication and Promotion Committee of the B.Sc. and M.Sc. study program in Chemical Engineering at Politecnico di Milano.
