Short biography of the visiting scholar
Elisa Moretti is an Associate Professor of Inorganic Chemistry at the Department of Molecular Sciences and Nanosystems, Ca’ Foscari University of Venice (Italy). After receiving a PhD Degree in Chemistry (2005) at the Ca’ Foscari University, she moved to the University of Malaga (Spain) for a post-doctoral experience. She is leading a multidisciplinary group focusing on the development of advanced 0-3D nanostructured inorganic materials for energy and environmental applications, including photocatalysis (e.g. on board H2 purification by CO preferential thermal/photo-oxidation, dyes and drugs photodegradation for water remediation).
Aim and scope of the visit
Prof. Elisa Moretti’s research interests are in the field of advanced nanomaterials for renewable energies and environmental remediation.
Elisa’s research is naturally in line with SUN initiative, in terms of both use/re-use of natural resources and support to sustainability transition. Her direct connection with industrial partners on the use of raw materials makes the collaboration with Elisa a practical and direct opportunity to develop the mission of SUN’s initiative about “showing the way for a successful restructuring of the basic industry”, strengthening the international LTU’s connections with Ca’ Foscari University of Venice. Elisa's visit will include seminars and joint research on nanomaterials for environmental remediation.
