Sonia was born in Voghera in 1993. She studied Chemistry at the University of Pavia, obtaining the master’s degree in 2017. At the same year, she started the PhD School of chemical and pharmaceutical sciences and related industrial innovation. Her research activity focuses on the development of supramolecular devices, in solution and in solid state, for the recognition and the detection of analytes of biological and environmental interest.

Riccardo Mobili obtained his BSc in chemistry at the University of Camerino. In 2019, he received his Master’s degree in supramolecular and bioinorganic chemistry at the University of Pavia with a thesis on dicopper cryptates as selective receptors and extractants. In the same year he started his PhD under the supervision of Valeria Amendola.

Our team @ Unical

Rosaria Bruno is a post-doctoral researcher at the University of Calabria recruited for the MOCA project. She gets Ph.D. in july 2020 at the Chemistry and Chemical Technologies Department – Project PON RICERCA & INNOVAZIONE FSE-FESR 2014-2020, under professor Donatella Armentano supervision. Research field is regarding material science and coordination chemistry, rational synthesis of porous coordination polymers (PCPs), also recognised as MOFs (Metal‐Organic Frameworks), and their environmental application. Moreover, she spent her Ph.D. abroad period at the Instituto de Ciencia Molecular(ICMol) of Valencia, in the laboratory of the professor Emilio Pardo where she was directly involved in MOF synthesis. Now her role in the project is referred to the synthetic line in the research of advanced bio-MOF.

Our team @ CNR-ITM

Marcello Monteleone graduated in chemistry in 2002 at the University of Calabria. In 2012, He obtained is PhD in chemistry from the same University. He is post-doc research fellow at ITM-CNR in the group of Dr. J. C. Jansen since 2014. His research activities are focused on the preparation and characterization of polymeric and mixed matrix polymeric membrane, and of the analysis of their transport properties with pure gases and mixtures

From the May 1st Mariagiulia Longo was recruited as Post-doc researcher in the frame of the MOCA project, where she follows in the footsteps of Dr. Marcello Monteleone, who moved to a new position at ITM. She was graduated in Material Science in 2017 at the University of Calabria and got the PhD degree in Physical, chemical and material sciences and technologies in February 2022. Her research activities were focused on the study of different types of polymeric membranes for gas separation processes in order to understand their structure-properties relationships, with emphasis on the correlation between the mechanical and transport properties. She spent the seven months of the international training period at University of Edinburgh under the supervision of prof Neil McKeown, where she develop novel PIM-based polymeric blend membranes.
