Mariarita Santoro (XXXIV cycle Ph.D. MHEE)
My research project focuses on the design and the study of a novel integrated system consisting of structured catalysts prepared by coating a metallic foam with a Ni/Ce0.85Sm0.15O2-d layer. The structured catalyst will be combined in the anode chamber of a SOFC (Solid Oxide Fuel Cell) to promote the internal reforming of biogas.
Pedro P. Machado Pico (XXXV cycle Ph.D. MHEE)
My research project is focused on the development of innovative materials for applications in energy conversion and storage devices. In particular, my work consists of the preparation and characterization of electrocatalysts obtained by the combination of carbon-based materials and non-precious metals for application in low-temperature fuel cells (i.e, Proton Exchange Membrane Fuel Cells and Microbial Fuel Cells).
Martina Marasi (XXXV cycle Ph.D. MHEE)
The aim of my research project is the study and development of materials for electrodes for intermediate temperature solid oxide fuel cells (IT-SOFC). In particular, the activity is focused on the synthesis of doped perovskites, electrochemical characterization, catalytic analysis, and single-cell processing.
Anna Paola Panunzi (XXXVI cycle Ph.D. MHEE)
My research project is focused on the development of perovskite oxides as electrodes for intermediate temperature solid oxide fuel cells (IT-SOFC) and solid oxide electrolizers (SOEC). My activity deals with the investigation of structural, morphological, electrochemical and catalytic properties of perovskites doped with noble metals
Beatrice Ricciardi (XXXVI cycle Ph.D. MHEE)
My project is focused on Platinum-Group-Metal-Free materials for electrocatalysis of O2 and CO2 Reduction Reaction in alkaline and neutral environment. In particular, my research efforts are devoted to the synthesis and characterization of covalent organic frameworks (COFs) for applications in energy-related devices.
