Riccardo Ruffo received an M.S. degree in chemistry from the University of Milan, Milan, Italy, in 1997, an M.S. degree in material science and technology from the University of Milano, in 2001, and a Ph.D. degree in materials science from the University of Milano-Bicocca, Milan, Italy, in 2004. During the Ph.D. degree, he joined the Group of W. Weppner, Christian Albrecht University of Kiel. He is an Assistant Professor of physical chemistry at the University of Milano-Bicocca, Italy, in 2007. His research interests are in the field of inorganic materials for energy production and storage (solid oxide fuel cells and alkaline ion batteries), ii), semiconducting polymers for electrooptical applications (photovoltaic and electrochromism), and oxide- nanostructured material for gas sensing. He is also proficient in the electrochemical characterization of organic molecules. He has coauthored about 60 peer-reviewed papers and more than 100 scientific that contributes to national or international conferences. He is a Peer-Reviewer for international scientific journals, among them the Nature Communications, Nano Letters, Angewandte Chemie, ACS Nano, Chemistry of Materials, Electrochemical Communications, Electrochimica Acta, Journal of Power Sources, Solar Energy Materials and Solar Cells, Solid State Ionics, Journal of Materials Science, and Journal of the Electrochemical Society. His h-factor is 15. He was involved in the European FP6 and FP7 Funding Programs of the European Community (NANOEFFECTS and INNOSHADE, respectively). He was also the Principal Investigator of national research projects and acts as evaluators for the European Community Funding Agency.
