Prof. Marco Sangermano
Department of Applied Science and Technology
Politecnico di Torino
Corso Duca degli Abruzzi, 24, 10124, Torino, Italy
Marco Sangermano took his Master Degree in Organic Chemistry at the University of Turin. He joined the Politecnico di Torino as a PhD student. He did his PhD on cationic photopolymerization of propenyl and vinyl ether monomers. After his PhD graduation in January 2000, he spent one year as a post-doc to Professor’s Crivello labs at RPI in Troy, New York, USA.
After three years as Post-Doc in Politecnico di Torino at Materials Science Department, he was appointed as Researcher-Assistant Professor at the same Department starting from January 2004. He has been appointed as Associate Professor since December 2010.
In 2007 he was granted with the prestigious Alexander von Humboldt grant to spend a period of 6 months at IPF in Dresden, Germany, where he performed in cooperation with Prof. B. Voit investigations on hybrid materials and on epoxy coatings containing CNTs.
In 2009 he visited for one month McGill University, in Montreal, Canada, in the frame of Italia-Quebec exchange program. In 2010 he was invited as a visiting Scientist at Monash University, Melbourne, Australia. In 2011 he was invited by CSACS-McGill as visiting Scientist for one month, during which he gave lectures on photopolymerization to PhD students. In 2013 he was visiting Professor at EPFL in Lausanne, Switzerland and in McGill University in Montreal.
Marco Sangermano main activities are in the field of photopolymerization, structure-properties relationships studies, tailoring formulations for achieving specific properties, surface modifications by employing fluorinated or silicone additives and preparation of nanostructured polymeric coatings. He is a co-author of over 250 papers on International journals with an h-index of 33.
