Academic Curriculum

Raffaella De Piano graduated in Chemical Engineering in the academic year 2018/2019 in the department of Industrial Engineering in University of Salerno. From June 2020 to September 2020 she has collaborated with the department with a research scholarship “Analysys of the effect of the ions on polyelectrolyte hydrogels behavior”. In her master thesis “Modeling of polyelectrolyte hydrogels” has focused her attention on the behavior of anionic hydrogels in steady state conditions and she is actually studying the behavior of the same hydrogels considering a transitory system. In November 2020 she has begun her PhD degree in the Department of Industrial Engineering, the title of the research is “Advanced drug delivery system based on hydrogel and nanoparticles: characterization and modeling of their behavior”.

She has published together with the research group two scientific work:

“Modeling the modified drug release from curved shape drug delivery systems-Dome Matrix” published in 2017 and concerning the work she has focused on during her bachelor thesis;

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