Curriculum

  • 2018-2021: PhD course in Agricultural, Food and Environmental Science, University of Catania. Research project: “Green Buildings, structural components by agricultural process wastes”. This research stems from the need to exploit waste materials of agricultural processes and reuse them. These wastes can be reused for new constructions, or renovation, turning them into a resource for manufacturing new products (e.g. insulating panels), reducing the environmental impact. The aim is to evaluate the potential of agricultural wastes, as sheep wool fibers, whey and straw, to improve the agriculture building’s thermal conditions and their energy efficiency. The aim of the PhD project is to study sustainable alternatives use for renewable resources: definitely, to close a material’s production cycle, waste that is becoming new raw material with dual purpose: to obtain benefit for farmers, reducing cost of disposal waste, and to improve environmental protection.
  • 1998-1999: Degree in Engineering, University of Catania; Supervisors: Prof. Ugo Cantone. Degree thesis: “Progetto di un complesso teatrale in piazza della Repubblica”.  Final mark: 110/110.
