Silvia Bodoardo, born in Turin in 1965, graduated in chemistry at the Turin University, Faculty of Science, Turin, Italy. She received her Ph.D. degree in materials engineering at Politecnico of Milan. She is actually Assistant Professor at Politecnico di Torino. She actually teaches chemistry at the Politecnico di Torino and is also Teacher in applied chemistry, materials technology, and electrochemistry. Her research activity followed these lines: the catalytic activity of microporous materials; the electrochemical behaviour of zeolites and asbestos; structural characterization and electrochemical properties of manganese dioxide, as active material in alkaline batteries; research regarding lead acid battery; study on films of high Tc superconductive materials; electrochemical characterization nano- and mesoporous materials containing redox active metal species; electrochemical process of oxygen reduction on WC/Co powders which leads to lung disease formation; synthesis and characterization of electrodic materials for Li-ion cells; synthesis and characterization of polymeric electrolytes for Li-ion cells. She is involved in different Eu and regional research projects. She is also a Referee for some international Journal, as Thin Solid Films, Journal of Power Sources, European Ceramic Society, Electrochimica Acta, and Ionics.
