Alberto Tiraferri is Associate Professor in the Department of Environment, Land, and Infrastructural Engineering (DIATI) at Politecnico di Torino. He is also the manager of the CleanWaterCenter, the interdepartmental center of Politecnico di Torino dedicated to sustainable and efficient water treatment. Prof. Tiraferri received his B.Sc. from Università Politecnica delle Marche (Ancona, Italy) and Ph.D. from Yale University in 2012 in Chemical and Environmental Engineering. During his doctoral work, he conducted research under the supervision of Prof. Menachem Elimelech. Subsequently, Prof. Tiraferri worked for two years as a Marie Sklodowska-Curie Fellow in the lab of Prof. Borkovec at the University of Geneva in Switzerland. His current research interests include (i) membrane-based separation for water production and resource efficiency, (ii) decontamination and water purification using advanced oxidation, (iii) applications of innovative techniques for the reclamation of contaminated environment systems, (iv) contaminant dynamics in water.
