Teacher: Dr. Matteo Bonomo

Matteo Bonomo is Post-Doc Researcher at the University of Turin and his work is mainly related to the synthesis and characterization of innovative materials for emerging photovoltaics. More recently, MB has been involved in the investigation of structural and electronic properties of Ionic Liquids and Deep Eutectic Solvents for energetic application. He has received, among others, the Junior “ENERCHEM 2020” (for his innovative contribution in Chemistry for Renewable Energy). He is (co)author of 39 publications (h-index 12, >380 citations) in international peer-reviewed journals.
