Welcome to Francesco Abate and Raffaella Lamuraglia
Francesco Abate and Raffaella Lamuraglia join the Characterization and Protection of Cultural Heritage Materials research group, as Ph.D. students! Raffaella has a Master Degree in Conservation Science and Technology for Cultural Heritage and in her master thesis she evaluated anti-UV and anti-graffiti coatings for contemporary paints in Urban Art. At the CCHT, Raffaella will work in particular on characterization and protection of Roman frescoes. Francesco studied Material Engineering at the Università degli Studi di Napoli Federico II, and his thesis was focused on the Laser deposition of polymer-based thin films containing encapsulated inhibitor for Conservation of Cultural Heritage. At the CCHT, he will work on the protection of ancient metals. We are happy to welcome Raffaella and Francesco in our group!
