Giuseppe Caputo works as an Assistant Professor of chemical engineering since 2003 at the School of Engineering of the University of Salerno, Salerno, Italy, where he also serves as a Faculty Member of the Department of Industrial Engineering. He received a Laurea degree (five years) in chemical engineering from the University of Palermo, Palermo, Italy, in 1998. In 2002 he obtained a Ph.D. degree in chemical technology and new materials from the University of Palermo with a thesis entitled “Micro and Nanoparticles Generation Techniques Using Dense Carbon Dioxide.” In 2004, he has been a Visiting Research Fellow at the University College of London, London, UK. In 2011 He has been elected as a Member on the National University Council (CUN) as a representative of the Italian community of industrial and information engineering. He has also founded the web magazine menodizero (www.menodizero.eu) concerning university policy themes. Caputo is Member of the American Chemical Society (ACS) and of the International Society for the Advancement of Supercritical Fluids (ISASF). He is also a Member of the editorial board of the Journal of Industrial Engineering and Management and he is referee of four ISI journals. He has been invited to various seminars at the Imperial College of London, National Technical University of Athens, and CNRS of the Université PARIS XIII and he collaborates with the Universidade de Castiilla-La Mancha. His research activity consists in the industrial application of supercritical fluids technology. His current areas of interest include extraction, generation of micro- and nanoparticles, and supercritical fluid adsorption on aerogels. Caputo is involved in various research projects financed by Italian Ministry of Research, by the University of Salerno, and by private companies. He is the author of 20 papers published on international journals and more than 20 presentations at international conferences. His papers have obtained 342 citations with h=9 (September 2011).
