Gianmaria Pio

University of Bologna

Graduate Student



Gianmaria Pio obtained a Master’s degree in Chemical Engineering from the University of Salerno (Italy) in 2016. Before graduating, he was an intern at the Technological University of Eindhoven (The Nederlands), involved in research activities aiming at the optimization of hydrogen production plants under the supervision of Professor Van Sint Annaland and Professor Gallucci. After his graduation, he worked as a research fellow on the development and characterization of innovative unstructured catalysts for partial oxidation reactors, in cooperation with the University of Salerno and the University of Bologna (Italy). He is currently a Ph.D. student at the Department of Civil, Chemical, Environmental, and Materials Engineering at the University of Bologna, studying the safety aspects involving chemical plants and fuels at low-temperature conditions. His project consists of either experimental analysis or numerical studies. Within the Ph.D. project, the experimental part is performed at ProCEEd laboratories at the University of Salerno, and the numerical part at LISES facilities hosted at the University of Bologna, under the supervision of Professor Palma and Professor Salzano, respectively. During his Ph.D. he was granted the “Marco Polo” scholarship for his research at MIT as a visiting student and joined Professor Green’s group to investigate the combustion mechanisms for biofuels using Reaction Mechanism Generator (RMG).
