Biography

Fabrizio Bardelli received his MSc degree in Physics at the University of Roma Tre (Rome, Italy) in 2001, and his PhD degree in Physics at the Joseph Fourier University (Grenoble, France) in 2006.

He worked six years at the European Synchrotron Radiation Facility in Grenoble (France), were he became expert in X-ray absorption spectroscopy (EXAFS and XANES) and other synchrotron radiation based techniques (XRF, XRD, XPDF).

Fabrizio Bardelli has a strong background in condensed matter physics and materials science, and, since 2006, his main research topics focus on environmental health hazards in the biosphere. His researches range from the fate of natural pollutants, such as As and Se, in soil, plants, and groundwater, and anthropogenic hazards, such as heavy metal contamination (Hg and Cr), particulate matter, toxic/carcinogenic nanofibers and nanoparticles, and issues related to the long term storage of radioactive wastes.

He recently received funds in the framework of the H2020 Programme (Marie Sklodowska-Curie - Individual Fellowship) to carry on a project entitled "Revealing the composition and formation mechanism of carcinogenic asbestos bodies in human lungs" (BiominAB-3D). This project will make use of cutting-edge synchrotron investigation tools, such as micro X-ray fluorescence tomography and phase-contrast X-ray tomography.
