Francesca Lionetto - Post-DOC


Francesca LionettoFrancesca Lionetto received the Master degree in Material Engineering at the University of Lecce (Italy) in 1999. After working one and half year with Bosch company, both in Bari and Stuttgar, she granted a PhD fellowship in Material Engineering at the University of Lecce. In 2002 she granted a Marie Curie Fellowship for a six month period of research activity at the Division of Food Sciences of the University of Nottingham. She received the Ph.D. title in 2004 defending a thesis on an innovative technique for the ultrasonic dynamic mechanical characterization of polymers. Since 2004 she is a post-doc at the Department of Innovation Engineering of the University of Salento in Italy.
Since 2005 up today she teaches in the Course “Science and Technology of Materials” for the students of the Bachelor in Technologies for Conservation and Restoration, Faculty of Cultural Heritage at the University of Salento.
Her main research interests are: i) synthesis and characterization of nanostructured polymers; ii) nanocomposites reinforced with carbon nanotubes; iii) organic-inorganic epoxy-based hybrids produced by sol-gel method; iv) ultrasonic dynamic mechanical analysis for the characterization of the viscoelastic properties of polymers and polymer based composites; v) cure monitorig of thermosetting resins; vi) characterization of biopolymers, such as wood and starch.
