Dr. Dario Zappa

Dario Zappa was born in 1982 in Brescia.
He graduated in Information Engineering – Industrial Electronics curriculum – in 2005, with a thesis entitled “Experimental evaluation of the Texas Instruments MSP430 microcontroller for wireless applications”.
In April 2008 he had an internship in the laboratory “Mobile Experience Lab” from MIT in Boston for a joint project between the University of Brescia, MIT and the Province of Brescia.
In 2009 he obtained the Master Degree in Electronics Engineering for Automation – Integrated Systems and Devices – with a thesis entitled “Study of the current transport in OLED”.
In 2013 he obtained the PhD in Materials for Engineering at the University of Brescia, Department Information Engineering (formely Department of Physics and Chemistry) with a thesis entitled “Metal Oxide Nanostructures for Sensing Applications”.
From June 2014 to July 2017 he was a Researcher at the CNR-INO. Actually he is Assistant Professor at “SensorLab”, Department of Information Engineering (DII), University of Brescia. He is the responsible of the "Common technological platform for preparation of nanostructured and monodimensional oxides" research line, and his research activities are focused on the synthesis and characterization of nanostructored metal oxides for different applications, including gas sensors, thermoelectric devices and fuel cells. In the last few years, he was involved in some 7th EU programme projects (ORAMA, S3, MSP) and in some national projects (FIRB, SUSBIOREM). Since 2012 he is lecturer in Physics at the University of Brescia.
