Antonella Gervasini, born in Varese, December 11, 1958, obtained degree in chemistry and pharmaceutical technology with full marks (1981) and Ph.D. degree in chemistry sciences (1987) from the Università degli Studi di Milano, Milan, Italy. From 1987 to 1992, she worked as industrial researcher and scientific coordinator of the group of "characterization of heterogeneous catalysts" in the catalysis research group of Enitecnologie, San Donato Milanese (ENI group). From 1992 to 2001, Gervasini worked as Researcher at the Dipartimento di Chimica Fisica ed Elettrochimica, Facoltà di Scienze, Università degli Studi di Milano, and from 2001 till now, Associate Professor in physical chemistry disciplines. She performed several periods of research stages at the Institut de Recherches sur la Catalyse, CNRS, Villeurbanne, France (1987, 1990, and 1993) where she was invited as Associate Professor in 2003. She also worked as Invited Professor at the Université de Sciences et Technologies de Lille-1, France, in November 2010. The research activity is framed in different subjects of the inorganic physical chemistry and heterogeneous catalysis, and it is proved by more than 130 scientific papers principally published in international scientific journals and by about 200 contributions to congresses. She was invited as lecturer in several meetings and summer schools. She participated in numerous Italian research programs supplied by funds from Ministry of University and Public Research (MURST), Center for National Research (CNR). She received Grants from UE (INCO-Copernicus Project 1999–2001). She teaches several class courses on physical chemistry and catalysis for students of industrial chemistry (First level and Master courses) of the Facoltà di Scienze, Università degli Studi di Milano.
