Accademic Curriculum

Raffaella De Piano graduated in Chemical Engineering in the 2018/2019 academic year at the Department of Industrial Engineering of the University of Salerno. From June 2020 to September 2020 she was the holder of a scholarship at the University of Salerno entitled ‘Analysis of the effect of ions on the behavior of polyelectrolyte hydrogels’.

In her thesis entitled ‘Modeling of polyelectrolyte hydrogels’, she dealt with the mathematical study aimed at describing the behavior of anionic hydrogels in a steady state and the analysis of their behavior considering a transient system is being studied. From 2 November 2020 he began the PhD course at the Department of Industrial Engineering entitled: Advanced drug dosage systems based on hydrogels and nanoparticles: characterization and modeling of their behavior.

Together with the research group she is co-author of two scientific papers:

“Modeling the modified drug release from curved shape drug delivery systems-Dome Matrix” published in 2017 and referring to the work done on neutral hydrogels studied during the three-year thesis;

“Drug release from hydrogel-based matrix systems partially coated: experiments and modeling”.
