Pier Luca Maffettone Pier Luca Maffettone graduated from the Chemical Engineering Department of the University of Naples Federico II and received his Ph.D from the same University in 1993, where he stayed two more years as a post-doc researcher. After research visits at the University of Delaware and at Stanford University, he became Assistant Professor at the University of Naples Federico II in 1994. Four years later he moved to the Politecnico di Torino as an Associate Professor. In 2005 Pier Luca Maffettone returned to the University of Naples Federico II as Full Professor at the Department of Chemical, Materials and Production Engineering, where he is head of the Department since 2013. He is a member at large of the Executive Committee of the European Society of Rheology and member of the editorial board of “Rheological Acta”.
