Lorenzo Pezzana

Ph.D. student

Department of Applied Science and Technology, Politecnico di Torino


Lorenzo Pezzana is a Ph.D. student in Material working on UV-curable biobased monomers. His project deals with the functionalization of biobased monomers for UV-cationic photopolymerization. These materials and their properties will be tailored to produce and bulk applications with high performances and low environmental impact.

In 2020, Lorenzo graduated in Master of in Materials at Politecnico di Torino. He worked for his thesis at KTH-Royal Institute of Technology, Stockholm, Sweden, under the supervision of Prof. Mats Johansson and prof. Eva Malmström (Coating Division), and successfully developed bio-based monomers for UV-curing resins. He also produced silicone-based thermal conductive films for sensing applications in collaboration between Photopolymer Research Group and OSAI S.A. Spa (Ivrea).
