I am the the PI of SEFI Lab – the Laboratory of Surface Engineering and Fluid Interfaces.
SEFI Lab brings about research and innovation for the development of new technologies towards clean water and energy-efficient processes, two corner stones for sustainable development.
Research activities focus on understanding interfacial transport phenomena, for the design of innovative smart interfaces. SEFI Lab is characterized by an interdisciplinary approach, at the interface between thermofluidics, material science and surface micro- and nano-engineering.
The main research lines of SEFI Lab are:
- water-surface interaction: icephobic surfaces, atmospheric water harvesting
- 3D printing using DLP (Digital Light Processing)
- biopolymer films (chitosan and cellulose)
