Antonio Barbucci has a permanent researcher position at the University of Genova, Department of Chemical Engineering. He obtained his PhD at the University of Genova in 1995. The scientific activity of Antonio Barbucci has developed in the field of Electrochemistry and Materials Science. During last 15 years his attention was devoted to electrochemistry applied to various classes of materials, from metals, intermetallics and ceramics, becoming acquainted with most of the electrochemical techniques which enables to investigate electrochemical systems and processes in situ.
He has been involved in several research projects at the Department of Chemical Engineering and since 2006 also in projects of the Institute for Energetics and Interphases of the National Research Council, where he is in charge as associated researcher, dealing mainly with the forming and sintering, electrical characterisation of ceramics for high temperature fuel cells. Among the international co-operations, the most important are those with the University of Barcelona (Spain), Ecole des Mines de Paris (France), the Bulgarian Academy of Sciences (Bulgaria).
Antonio Barbucci is co-author of about 60 papers on international journals, about 80 presentations to International Conferences and operates as referee for a few Journals in the fields of electrochemistry.
