Alberto Fina, born in 1979, graduated in “Materials Engineering” with specialisation in polymers for advanced technologies at Polytechnic of Torino in 2003 and his PhD in “Materials Science and Technology” at the same institution in 2007.
Starting from his PhD, Alberto Fina have been addressing the preparation of polymer nanocomposites using different nanoparticles (nanoclays, layered double hydroxides, Polyhedral Oligomeric SilSesquioxanes-POSS) mainly aiming at flame retardancy properties. In 2009, he enlarged his research domain to thermally conductive polymer nanocomposites. This topic soon became his main research field, mostly in terms of applied research in the frame of EU FP7 projects Thermonano and Nanocool, and more recently to the fundamental aspect behind the problem of thermal conductivity in polymer nanocomposites, in the frame of the ERC starting grant project INTHERM. In the last 3 years he have also been active in the field of layer by layer coating depositions onto films for food packaging applications.
