Dr Vincenzo Spallina

Vincenzo Spallina is a Senior Lecturer in the Department of Chemical Engineering at The University of Manchester. His research is devoted to the process intensification (chemical looping, membrane reactors) applied to sustainable routes for energy and chemical production by using experimental and modelling techniques. He obtained a PhD cum laude at the Politecnico of Milano in 2013. Prior to joining the University of Manchester as Lecturer in 2018, he was post-doctoral researcher at the Eindhoven University of Technology and Tecnalia Research Centre, where he was involved in several national and international projects related to chemical looping technologies, membranes technologies. Since 2019, he has been involved in several research projects (with a credit share > £ 2m) including decarbonisation of steel industry EPSRC BREINSTORM (PI) and CLYCHING) and H2020 project C4U (Co-I) biofuel production and waste valorisation (leading a £4.5m H2020 project GLAMOUR) and EPSRC SPACING (Co-I) . He is currently supervising five post-doctoral research associates and five PhD students.
