Stefano Chimenti has earned his Bachelor and Master degree  at the Department of Chemistry and Industrial Chemistry of Pisa. During the bachelor, he carried out a study air filtration system in the pharmaceutical industries through an internship at Sertec-SGS.  During the Master Degree he has held the professional position of Quality Assurance and Quality Control inspector and consultant in the pharmaceutical production within the same company of the previous post.

In 2014 he earned his Master in which he carried out a thesis focused on:

- development of a new route for the functionalization of cellulose nanocrystals with biodegradable and biocompatible Polymers based on Poly(L-lactic acid) and Poly (ε-Caprolactone).

- dispersion of cellulose nanocrystals in biodegradable and biocompatible polymers in order to achieve bionanocomposites.

This research project was carried out, within a Brazilian project called RETE NANOBIOTECH, under the supervision of both Prof. Giacomo Ruggeri (Prof. at the department of Chemistry and Industrial Chemistry of Pisa) and Prof. Valdir Mano (Prof. at the department of Natural science of the University of São João-Brazil).


Since January 2015 he is a PhD student at POLYMAT under the supervision of both Prof. Prof. Jose Ramon Leiza and Prof. Maria Paulis. His research program is focused on the development of high hydrophobic coatings with anticorrosive properties through the addition of different nanofillers.
