Andrea Gallo holds a MSc in Environmental Chemistry from the University of Torino, where he graduated summa cum laude in 2016. His final project concerning the photolytic degradation of nitric oxide by means in a flow reactor was presented at the 5th European Conference on Environmental Applications of Advanced Oxidation Processes.
He is a PhD student (33rd cycle) under the supervision of Prof. Rajandrea Sethi and Prof. Tiziana Tosco. His work is focused on the synthesis, characterization, optimization and transport of reactive nanoparticles for environmental remediation, in particular on zero-valent iron-based nanoparticles. His studies are predominantly experimental, concearning laboratory-scale production of nanoparticles, morphological and chemical characterization and reactivity testing.
Andrea enjoys his free time with friends, reading novels and (still) playing videogames. He is an enthusiast photographer, mainly of landscape and nature, and he often hikes in the Italian Alps with his camera.
