Dr. Alfonso Martone graduated in aerospace engineering at the University of Naples Federico II, Italy (2005), where he also received his Ph.D. degree in materials and structures engineering, in 2009. From 2006 to 2010, he worked at CNR-IMCB as a research fellow involved in the national grant ARCA, where an innovative material architecture was developed in order to enhance the passive damping features of advanced composite materials. From 2012-2013 he worked at CNR-IMCB as post-doc and was involved in several EU and national projects within the area of composite characterization and modeling. In 2015 he won the grant “CNR-Short Time Mobility 2015”, he worked in the laboratory of professor Pezzotti at Kyoto Institute of Technology on a research project on shelf healing composites. During this period he acquired experience on Raman piezo-spectroscopy of polymers. He is currently working as a researcher at the Institute for Polymers, Composites and Biomaterials (IPCB) of the National Research Council (CNR), Italy. His current research interests include the study of carbon nanotube composites, hybrid advanced composites, viscoelasticity of polymers and composites, advanced composites manufacturing and thermos-mechanical characterization, structural health monitoring. His has published more than 20 scientific contributions on international journal and books.
