M.D. Pizzoccaro - Zilamy PhD (Marie-Alix)

Assistant Professor

About Me

I received my PhD in November 2017 in Chemistry and Physical Chemistry of Materials from the University of Montpellier (France) with a dissertation relating to the confinement and grafting of ionic liquids in mesoporous ceramic membranes for the selective transport of CO2. In February 2018, I joined the Inorganic Membrane group at the University of Twente as a postdoctoral researcher for the development and testing of a new class of porous Hybrid Silica Membranes.
