Giovanni Ianniruberto Giovanni Ianniruberto graduated in Chemical Engineering in 1992 at the University of Naples Federico II, where in 1996 he received a PhD in Chemical Engineering. After a few post-doc periods (in Naples and in Cambridge), in 2000 he became Assistant Professor at the University of Naples Federico II. He is Associate Professor in the same University since 2005. His research activity has mostly been carried out in the field of the modelling of the rheology of complex fluids, mostly polymeric liquids, with the aim of developing molecularly-based constitutive equations and simulation algorithms, particularly relevant for fast flows as those encountered in processing applications. He is co-author of more than 60 publications on international journals. He was scientist-in-charge of the European ITN project “Dynamics of Architecturally Complex Polymers” (DYNACOP) from 2010 to 2012, and since 2013 he is scientist-in-charge of the ITN project “Supramolecular assembly of polymeric structures: a novel route to enhance soft materials properties” (SUPOLEN).
