Davide Ferri is Senior Scientist in the Catalysis for Energy Group at the Paul Scherrer Institut (PSI; Switzerland). By education, he is technical chemist with an M.S. degree from the University of Milano (Italy) on methane combustion over perovskite-type oxides. In 2002, he received his Ph.D. degree in the group of Professor A. Baiker at ETH Zurich (Switzerland) on the spectroscopic study of enantioselective Pt-based catalysts. After a short period at Bruker Optics GmbH in Faellanden (Switzerland) as sale and application manager, he moved back to ETH Zurich for an oberassistent position in Professor Baiker group. There, he was responsible for in situ spectroscopic studies of various catalytic systems. From 2007 to autumn 2012 he has leaded a research group at Empa (Switzerland) focused on automotive catalysis and in situ/operando spectroscopy. His interests lie in the catalysis for emission control, catalysis by perovskite-type oxides, catalysis for renewables, in situ/operando spectroscopy, TWC for natural gas-fuelled engines, solid-gas, and solid-liquid interfaces. Dr. Ferri is the author of more than 100 scientific publications in international peer-reviewed journals and cosupervised 10 Ph.D. students. He serves as a Reviewer in a number of SCI journals, including JACS, the Journal of Physical Chemistry C, Journal of Catalysis, ACS Catalysis, Applied Catalysis A/B, Catalysis Science and Technology, Chemistry of Materials, Langmuir, Catalysis Letters, and Catalysis Communications.
