Vincenzo Augugliaro was born in 1949. He received the Doctor degree in chemical engineering from the University of Palermo (Italy) in 1975 with the notation of 110/110 cum laude. From 1976 to 1978, he attended the Dipartimento di Ingegneria Chimica dei Processi e dei Materiali of the University of Palermo with a fellowship from CNR (Rome). From 1978 to 1994, he has been an Associate Professor; since 1994 he is a Full Professor of transport phenomena at the Faculty of Engineering of the University of Palermo. In the course of his scientific activity, Professor Augugliaro has contributed to the following fields: chemical absorption kinetics, biochemical reactor modeling, diffusional kinetics in metalliding alloys, chemical kinetics of heterogeneous photocatalytic systems, modeling of heterogeneous photoreactors, radiation field modeling in absorbing-reacting media, advanced oxidation processes for environment remediation, and selective photocatalytic reactions. He is coauthor of some 130 papers published in ISI international journals.
