AIRJ è lieta di invitare tutti i ricercatori italiani in Giappone al prossimo AIRJ Talk, con il patrocinio dell’Ambasciata d’Italia in Tokyo, dal titolo: “Modalità per il rientro in Italia e che tratterà le chiamate dirette e il programma Rita Levi Montalcini”
Il Programma Rita Levi Montalcini rappresenta una delle principali iniziative del Ministero per consentire ai giovani ricercatori che lavorano all’estero di poter venire in Italia ed essere chiamati da una Università statale per svolgere la propria attività di ricerca.
L’evento, per i soci membri AIRJ, si terrà su Zoom il giorno 26 novembre 2021 alle ore 18:00 (orario Giappone), 10:00 (orario Italia).
All’evento interverranno quattro ospiti d’eccellenza che hanno beneficiato di tali modalità di rientro:
Olimpia NIGLIO, architect, associate professor at the University of Pavia, Faculty of Engineering, Department Civil Engineering and Architecture. She is a professor in Architectural Restoration. She is Vice President at ICOMOS International Scientific Committee “Place of Religion and Ritual” and Vice President “Asian Cultural Landscape Association” (SNU, Seoul; Varanasi, India). She worked at Kyoto University, Graduate School of Human and Environmental Studies, in Kyoto, and at Hosei University, Faculty of Engineering and Design in Tokyo.
Carlo Santoro is an Environmental Engineer by training (Politecnico di Milano). He obtained his Ph.D. at the University of Connecticut in 2009, working on microbial fuel cells. He moved to the University of New Mexico (2013-2017) as a Postdoctoral Researcher working on low-cost platinum-free catalyst for oxygen reduction reaction and supercapacitive bio-electrochemical systems. In 2014, he was Research Fellow at the Nanyang Technological University (Singapore). In 2017, he became Associate Professor at the University of the West of England (UK). Following a spell as Lecturer at the University of Manchester (UK) in 2020, he joined the University of Milano-Bicocca in 2021 with the “Rita Levi Montalcini Fellowship” as Assistant Professor, where he has established the Electrocatalysis and Bioelectrocatalysis Lab. His work focuses on development of electrocatalysts for based on platinum group metal-free electrocatalysis, pursuing biomimetic and bioinspired approaches, and on bioelectrochemical systems (enzymatic and microbial).
Carlo Antonini received the BSc in Aerospace Engineering (2004) and the MSc in Aeronautical Engineering (2007), from Politecnico di Milano, Italy, and the PhD in Technologies for Energy and Environment from University of Bergamo (2011), Italy, with a thesis titled “Superhydrophobicity as a strategy against icing”. In 2012, I received support from the European Research Council (ERC) to join ETH Zurich, Switzerland, as a Marie Curie Fellow; I worked in the Laboratory of Thermodynamics in Emerging Technologies on the project “ICE2: ICEphobicity for severe ICing Environments”. In March 2015 I joined EMPA – Swiss Federal Laboratory for Material Science and Technology – as scientist, focusing on the control of surface wetting properties of cellulose-based materials for various engineering applications, ranging from liquid separation (oil remediation) to thermal insulation. One of projects included ice templating as a technique to fabricate ultra-porous foams from nanofibrillated cellulose with selective liquid absorption. Since 2017 I am the scientific advisor of ApiTech (www.api-tech.it), an italian startup supporting innovation in SMEs. In September 2018 I joined the Department of Materials Science at the University of Bicocca-Milano (Italy), with the support of a Rita Levi Montalcini Fellowship, and was tenured as Associate Professor in 2021.
Alberto Vomiero is a chair professor of Experimental Physics at the Luleå University of Technology, Sweden, and a full professor of Industrial Engineering at Ca’ Foscari University of Venice, Italy, where he is also the director of the doctoral program in Science and Technology of Bio and Nanomaterials. He received a MSc in Physics from the University of Padova (1999) and a PhD in Electronic Engineering from the University of Trento (2003).
