Dr. Renata Adami got her Master Degree in Chemical Engineering in 2001 at University of Salerno (Italy) discussing a thesis on Atomization by Supercritical Fluids: Application to Catalyst Precursors. In 2007 she has taken her PhD degree in Food Chemistry at University of Turku (Finland) and in Chemical Engineering at University of Salerno with a thesis on Micronization of Pharmaceuticals and Food Ingredients using Supercritical Fluid Techniques. In the last 10 years she has been working on several projects related to supercritical fluids in pharmaceutical, polymeric and food fields and her particular expertise is in micronization using supercritical fluid based techniques. She had oral presentations at several International Conferences and has been invited lecturer at several universities (University of Turku, University of Erlange-Nuremberg, University of Zlin, University of Salerno). She has been invited in 2008 as a keynote speaker to the 15th Regional Symposium on Chemical Engineering (RSCE) - 22nd Symposium of Malaysian Chemical Engineers (SOMChE), Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia and in 2010 as speaker at First World Conference on Nanomedicine and Drug Delivery (WCN 2010), Kottayam, Kerala (India). In 2009 she got the AWARD of the Compressed Fluid Technologies Division of the Association of Finnish Chemical Societies for the best PhD thesis. In 2009-2010 she got a grant from Erlangen Graduate School in Advanced Optical Technologies (SAOT) of the Friedrich-Alexander-Universität Erlangen-Nürnberg, Germany, to study application of laser technology on the analysis of supercritical fluid micronization. She is presently research engineer at Department of Industrial Engineering at University of Salerno and works on projects related to supercritical fluids. She is involved in the Vigoni project with SAOT Erlangen, for the application of laser to supercritical fluids.
