Invited talk
Polymer derived aerogels for environmental and energy applications

Gian Domenico Soraru
University of Trento, Italy

Gian Domenico Sorar is professor of Materials Science and Technology at the University of Trento, Italy since 2000. After graduation from the University of Padua in 1987C1989 he joined the group of Prof. J. D. Mackenzie at UCLA as postdoc where he started to be involved in the PDCs field. In 1993C1994 and 1999 he was visiting professor at the University of Paris 6 and in 2002 visiting scientist at the University of Colorado at Boulder.

He has studied for more than 20 years the synthesis of ceramics from polymer precursor and in particular silicon oxycarbide glasses from sol-gel precursors. His current research interests are in the synthesis and characterization of micro-meso porous PDC including aerogels. He has published more than 190 papers in peer-reviewed journals and holds six patents.
