Elisabetta Di Bartolomeo is Associate Professor of Materials Science and Technology at the University of Rome “Tor Vergata”. She is the leader of the Solid Oxides Research Group (SORG). She received her Laurea in Physics from the University of Rome La Sapienza and her PhD in Materials Engineering from the University of Rome Tor Vergata.
She teaches several courses at post-graduate, graduate and undergraduate level, specifically, a course of Materials Technology and Applied Chemistry to engineering students and a course of Chemistry for Energy to engineering and chemistry students. She is the Coordinator of the International Ph.D. Course in Materials for Health, Environment and Energy.
The research interests are focused on the development of advanced ceramic materials for environmental monitoring and energy production. The activity is documented by more than 100 articles published on international journals and more than 200 contributions to congresses and national and international conferences. She was invited to give talks at international conferences and foreign institutions.
In 2011, she has been awarded by The American Ceramic Society ACerS Ross Coffin Purdy for the best paper on ceramics published in 2010: “High proton conduction in grain-boundary-free yttrium-doped barium zirconate films grown by pulsed laser deposition”, published in Nature Materials.
Since 2012 she is been acting as principal investigator of several project and she was the scientific leader of several research projects financed by MIUR, the Ministry for Foreign Affairs, The Ministry for Environment and the European Union.
She is active member of a number of professional societies, such as the Electrochemical Society (ECS), International Society of Electrochemistry (ISE), Materials Research Society (MRS), Interuniversity Consortium on Materials Science and Technology (INSTM) and Italian Society of Chemistry (SCI-Electrochemistry Division).
