Caterina Damiano

Postdoctoral Researcher

Università degli studi di Milano


Caterina Damiano received her master’s degree in Chemical Science (2016) from the University of Naples “Federico II” under the supervision of prof. Angela Lombardi. In 2016, she moved to the University of Milan where she recently received her PhD (2020) under the supervision of prof. Emma Gallo. She worked on the synthesis and catalytic application of hybrid catalytic systems for carbene and nitrene transfer reactions as well as for carbon dioxide activation. She is currently a post‑doctoral researcher at University of Milan in Emma Gallo’s group and her current research interest is focused on the development of heterogeneous eco‑compatible systems for promoting sustainable and atom efficient catalytic processes.
