Isabella Nicotera

Università della Calabria, Italy

Researcher at the Dept. of Chemistry, University of Calabria, since 2008, here she received her Ph.D. in Chemical Science in 2002, has a teaching position on several courses of Physical Chemistry and she is supervisor of undergraduate and PhD students. Research's experiences abroad: short-term stay at the School of Physics, University of Kent, Canterbury (2000) and Research Associate position at the "Solid State NMR" laboratory, Hunter College (CUNY), New York (2005). Her research focuses on synthesis and characterizations of nanostructured materials and hybrid membranes for electrochemical devices and the NMR spectroscopy (PFG, relaxometry, Rheo-NMR, MAS, Imaging) is surely her primary experimental tool, particularly effective to investigate molecular dynamics and mechanisms are the basis of the ionic conduction.
