Davide Vione was born on 14 October 1974. He graduated in chemistry in 1998 from the University of Turin and achieved his Ph.D. degree in chemical sciences in 2001. In November 2002, he became an Assistant Professor of analytical chemistry at the Department of Analytical Chemistry of the University of Turin, gaining tenure three years later. In 2010, he got the habilitation as an Associate Professor of Analytical Chemistry, a position he obtained in October 2011. His main research interests concern the study and modeling of photochemical reactions in surface and atmospheric waters: heterogeneous photocatalysis and its environmental and cosmetic applications, and advanced oxidation processes (including Fenton reaction and sonochemistry) for wastewater treatment. He has been the copresenter of two regional projects, and project coordinator for the Italian side within the Scientific and Technological Co-operation Program 2006–2008 between Italy and Romania and within the NATO—Science for Peace Program (CLG 982287, “Pesticides and nitrate levels in rainwater and groundwater of Iasi—Romania”). He has coordinated the European Project FP7-PEOPLE PIIF-GA-2008-219350 and is also coordinator for the Italian side of the Project “Photochemistry of cloud aqueous phase” within the Galileo Program of the Italo-French University. He has been twice a Visiting Professor at the Universitè Blaise Pascal (France, 2009 and 2011), and he has received the Young Researcher Award in 2003 from the Division of Analytical Chemistry of the Italian Chemical Society and the “European Young Researcher of the Year 2003” Award from the European Association of Chemistry and the Environment. His research activity resulted so far in 106 articles on ISI journals (overall IF 277.013), nine book chapters, and over 60 congress communications. The ISI-Web of Science database reports 1378 citations and h-index = 21 (February 2012).
