Biography

Federico Bella (Torino, 1987) is Full Professor of Chemistry at Politecnico di Torino. In the Electrochemistry Group, he leads the research activities on post-Li batteries, electrochemical nitrogen reduction and hybrid photovoltaics. Due to his important achievements in energy chemistry, he received the “ENI Award” and the “Roberto Piontelli Award” from the President of the Italian Republic. In 2021, he was the recipient of the USERN Prize, awarded among 10000 candidates by a jury of previous Nobel awardees. He is author of more than 100 international publications (h-index 65) and he leads the ERC project SuN2rise, a 1.5 M€ EU grant for redesigning NH3 production process. He has coordinated the Early-Career Division of the Italian Chemical Society and his member of the Editorial Board of cutting edge journals in the chemistry field, e.g. ChemSusChem and ACS Sustainable Chemistry & Engineering.
