After a Master in Industrial Chemistry at the Università Ca’ Foscari in Venezia (Italy), Lorenzo Stievano received his PhD in 1995 from the University of Ferrara with a thesis on the application of Mössbauer spectroscopy with common and less common isotopes to the study of heterogeneous catalysts. After two post-docs at the Institut de Recherches sur la Catalyse et l’Environnement in Villeurbanne (France) and at the Laboratoire de Réactivité de Surface in Paris (France), he was appointed Maître de Conférences at the Université Pierre et Marie Curie in Paris. During his work in Paris, he developed with Prof. Jean-François Lambert a completely new research subject on the study of the absorption and the reactivity of biological molecules on the surface of inorganic oxides.
After being appointed Professor at the Université de Montpellier in September 2009, Lorenzo Stievano joined the ICGM and started working in the fields of electrochemical energy storage. He is currently involved in several academic and industrial projects on lithium and post-lithium batteries.
Lorenzo Stievano is an expert in the characterization of functional inorganic materials by spectroscopy and diffraction techniques. He published more than 110 scientific papers in the different fields of inorganic chemistry, heterogeneous catalysis, materials and surface science since 1995.
