Mauro Zarrelli

Researcher

Mauro Zarrelli, born in 1974, he received his Master degree cum Laude in Material Engineering at University of Naples in 1998 and his PhD degree in Advanced Materials at Cranfield University in 2004. He was assistant Research at School of industrial and Manufacturing Science at Cranfield University from 1998 to 2002 on thermo-chemo characterization of novel polymer composite matrix for aerospace application (Cranfield University - EPSRC funded project) and he received an AUDI Foundation grant (2001) as young researcherfor the development of new holder jig to measure mechanical modulus during the polymerization reaction of modified thermosetting matrix system, working on cure induced stress deformation during the manufacturing of composites and physical-chemical changes due to the polymerization of thermosetting resin. From 2002 to 2004 as Responsible for the Thermo-Mechanical activities of Italian Aerospace Research Centre (CIRA) in Italy, he was involved in several EU and national project within the area of composites characterization and design. He is currently Associate Researcher at the Institute of Composite and Biomedical Material (IMCB) National Research Council (CNR) since 2005 and permanent in this position since 2008. His main research interests include: development of advanced composites, nano-reinforcement of thermosetting resin for composites application, cure dependent property, cure induced stresses in composite, viscoelasticity, and (as Responsible for an on going National project) resistance to fire of micro and nanoloaded thermosets. His has published more than 10 scientific contributions on international journal and books.
