Fausto Puntoriero since December 29,2008 is researcher (CHIM/02 – Physical Chemistry) at Dipartimento di Chimica Inorganica, Chimica Analitica e Chimica Fisica, Facoltà di Scienze MFN, Università degli Studi di Messina. • In 2010 he received the Young Researcher Award for the scientific production of the year 2007 • During 2002 He was “Principal Investigator” of the project:“Progettazione e studio di nuovi sensori luminescenti per applicazioni in campo ambientale” (Design and study of new luminescent sensors for applications in environment field). • 1998-2002 - PhD student, Dipartimento di Chimica Inorganica, Chimica Analitica e Chimica Fisica, Università degli studi di Messina (Italy). Supervisor: Prof. Sebastiano Campagna. The February 18, 2002 the proponent gained his PhD discussing a thesis on: “Verso una possibile conversione fotochimica dell’energia solare. Nuovi sistemi artificiali multicomponenti foto- e redox-attivi” - (Towards a possible photochemical conversion of the solar energy. New multicomponent artificial systems photo- and redox- actives). • 28 July 1998 - Bachelor in Chemistry, Università di Messina (Italy). Expertise: He has experience in the design, synthesis, redox, photochemical and photophysical properties of supramolecular systems such as polynuclear compounds linked by bridging ligands, dendrimers. The research activity is documented by more than 65 scientific publications in international refereed journals (h-index = 25) and participation in over 50 national and international conferences presenting contributions whether oral or poster,(e.g. Invited Keynote at the 2nd FISPHOTON (Marseille december 2009)). In 2011 he was also co-editor of a book published by Wiley entitled "Designing dendrimers".
