Federico Barbon is currently a PhD student of the PhD Program in "Science and Engeineering of Materials and Nanostructures" of the University of Padova, working under the supervision of Prof. Silvia Gross. and Prof. Alessandro Martucci.
His research focus is on hydrothermal synthesis and analytical characterization of nano- and micron- sized ceria, allumina and titania with different, specific morphologies and anisotropic shapes as support for heterogeneous catalysis. The actual catalytic activity of the prepared materials will be tested in Germany in collaboration with Prof. Jan-Dierk Grunwaldt (Karlsruher Institut für Technologie, KIT).
Born in Padua in 1995, he studied Industrial Chemistry at University of Padua where he obtained both his Bachelor (mark: 105/110, 2017) and Master Degrees (110/110 cum laude, 2019). During his Thesis period, he spent 6 months at the Justus-Liebig-Universität (Gießen, Germany) under the supervision of Dr. Wolfgang G. Zeier as part of the Erasmus+ for Traineeship program.
In 2020 he worked as a graduate fellow in the workgroup of Prof. Silvia Gross on the synthesis and characterization of nano- and micron- sized metal oxides.
