Fabrizio Di Caprio

Postdoctoral fellow
Fabrizio Di Caprio was born in Velletri (Rome, Italy) on 26/07/1988. In 2010 he got a bachelor's degree in agro-industrial biotechnology (110 and honors) and in 2013 he got a master's degree in Industrial Chemistry (110 and honors), both at University Sapienza of Rome. He worked six months in 2013 with Eco-One on the start-up of a pilot plant for microalgae cultivation in photobiorecators. He became PhD doctor in Chemical Engineering in 2017 with a thesis about the development of a process for wastewater treatment integrated to microalgae biomass production. He spent six months of its PhD at Wageningen University (Netherlands) in the Bioprocess Engineering research group working in the development of methods to quantify cell to cell heterogeneity in photobioreactors. From November 2016 until now he works in the Department of Chemistry at University Sapienza of Rome as postdoctoral fellowship. He is authors of several scientific publications on international journals and participated at different international scientific conferences.
