Gaetano LAMBERTI Curriculum

Dr. Gaetano Lamberti graduated in Chemical Engineering, summa cum laude, in 1997, then he gained the Ph.D. degree in Chemical Engineering in 2001. Then he obtained a post-doc grant at the Dep. of Chemical and Food Engineering, University of Salerno. In October 2003 he obtained a position as assistant professor in transport phenomena (S.S.D. ING-IND/24).

His didactic activity consisted in seminars in the frame of Principles of Chemical Engineering and Fluid Dynamics courses. He gave assistance to the courses: Introduction to the Chemical Engineering, Thermodynamics of the Chemical Engineering and Principles of Chemical Engineering. He was/is responsible for courses: Principles of Environmental Chemical Engineering, for the Master Degree in Civil and Environmental Engineering. And Thermodynamics II, for the II level of Degree for Chemical Engineers. He was also advisor or co-advisor for about 40 thesis in Chemical Engineering. Research activities of dr. Lamberti was developed mainly at the University of Salerno on the modelling of the supercritical extraction and on issues related to film casting and to crystallization of polymers. From October 2002 to April 2003 he worked for a period at the Mechanical Engineering Department at the Technical University of Eindhoven (NL). Recently, dr. Gaetano Lamberti devoted his attention to the transport phenomena which take place in pharmacology, particularly to the hydration kinetics and to the release of bioactive molecules from pharmaceutical solid systems (tablets), made up of swelling hydrogels. As usual, his research activities were both experimental, to elucidate the transport phenomena, and modeling, to describe the observed phenomena. He was a referee for the more than ten international journals. He produced more than 100 papers, of which about 40 are published on international journals.
