Ph.D. student

Department of Applied Science and Technology, Politecnico di Torino


Michael Zanon received his B.S. degree in Mechanical at Università degli Studi di Ferrara in 2015. After some years abroad in Australia, he enrolled for his M.Sc. degree in Materials Engineering at Politecnico di Torino. For his Master's thesis, he spent a semester at Almaden IBM Research Center in San Jose (CA) working on the development of polymeric e-noses for VOCs sensing. In 2019, he worked for developing silicone-based thermal conductive films for sensing applications, in collaboration between Photopolymer Research Group and OSAI S.A. Spa (Ivrea). In 2019, he started his in the Photopolymer Research Group. The aim of his research is to develop and synthesize photocurable for with tailored properties.
