Davide Moscatelli was born in 1978 in Milano; he is married and father of three children: Rebecca, Ginevra and Lorenzo. He received his Laurea cum laude in Chemical Engineering at the Politecnico di Milano in 2002, and his PhD cum laude in Chemical Engineering in 2006. In 2005 Davide got a position as Assistant Professor and starting from 2008 he spent fifteen months at ETH Zurich. In 2014 he became Associate professor in this Department and since 2018 he is full professor of Applied Physical Chemistry.
He serves as lecturer of Petroleum Technologies and Refining Processes course at Politecnico di Milano. Davide supervised more than 100 Bachelor thesis students in Chemical Engineering, more than 100 Master thesis students in Chemical, Biomedical, and Material Engineering. He supervised more than 10 PhD theses in Industrial Chemistry and Chemical Engineering.
His main research interests concern the application of physical chemistry fundamentals to analyze industrial processes of chemical nature and the materials synthesis: organic, inorganic, and polymers. The applications are related to industrial processes with chemical implications, polymers and inorganic materials for advanced technologies, and nanotechnology (primarily nanoparticles synthesis).
Active research lines are in the field of Polymer Reaction Engineering and Colloidal Engineering fields; primarily for biomedical and oil&gas applications. Davide Moscatelli is co-author of more than 120 papers on international journals and more than 10 international patents. He is co-founder of Captive Systems srl, a spin-off company of Politecnico di Milano actives in use of smart nanomaterials for wastewater treatments. Since 2017, he is Member of the Faculty Committee for the strategic plan Polimi2040.
Since 2018 he is member of the EASAC Energy Steering Panel and since 2020 Rector’s Delegate to Exploitation of Research and Technology Transfer.
