Personal Background and Education:
Paolo Fornasiero was born in 1968 in Ruti (Switzerland). In 1992 he obtained the degree in Chemistry (cum laude) and in 1997 the PhD in heterogeneous catalysis both at the University of Trieste (Italy). After one year as post-doctoral fellow at the Catalysis Research Center of the University of Reading (U.K.), in 1998 he was appointed assistant professor. In 2006, he became associate professor in Inorganic Chemistry and in 2016 he was nominated full professor in Inorganic Chemistry at the University of Trieste.
He is Associate Researcher of the National Council of Research (CNR) and from 2008 he is the scientific responsible of the CNR Research Unit associated with the Institute of Chemistry of OrganoMetallic Compounds (ICCOM) of Florence and located at the University of Trieste. Since 2015 he is Associate Editor of ACS Catalysis.
Professor Fornasiero is a member of the American Chemical Society, of the European Rare-Earth and Actinide Society - ERES, as well as of the INSTM Consortium.

Research Areas:
The scientific interests of Professor Fornasiero are in the field of material chemistry, with attention to the design and development of multi-functional metal-oxide nanosystems for their advanced applications in energy related material science and environmental heterogeneous catalysis.
