Claudio Gerbaldi, graduated in Chemistry and Ph.D. in Materials Science and Technology, is Full Professor of principles of chemistry for applied technologies and Chair of Chemistry and Organic Chemistry at the Politecnico di Torino. He is the leader of the Group for Applied Materials and Electrochemistry (GAME-Lab, https://it-it.facebook.com/GAMELabPoliTO/, https://twitter.com/gamelabg) at the Department of Applied Science and Technology – DISAT.
The specific mission of GAME Lab is the development and thorough characterization of innovative electrochemical energy storage and conversion systems (e.g., lithium and post-lithium batteries, third-generation solar cells, supercapacitors and photoelectrocromic devices), which are nowadays fundamental to exploit the full potential of future technologies requiring high performance, such as smart electronics, storage from renewables and electric transportation, with strong collaboration with academy/research centers worldwide and effective connections with industry and EU (6 funded EU H2020 projects and >10 research contracts with industries).
He is author/co-author of about 154 scientific research articles published in international ISI journals with >1100 annual citation counts in recent years (>6600 total citations) and h-index 54 (source SCOPUS, 03/2021), 6 International granted patents, 7 research book chapters, and participated in > 70 national/international conferences (>80 oral talks and/or poster presentations), 15 as distinguished invited/keynote/plenary speaker.
Among others, he has received the International “Roberto Piontelli” Award – International award delivered in the presence of the President of the Italian Republic, for outstanding scientific or technological contributions in the field of electrochemistry for energy-related applications, corrosion or physical chemistry (2015) and the ‘‘UniCredit Award’’ for the Young Innovation in Research (2007).
