Biography

Micaela Demichela was born in Torino, Italy, on May 7, 1970. She took her Master Science degree in Chemical Engineering at the Politecnico di Torino in 1997 and her PhD degree in Chemical Engineering in 2002. Since April 2006 she has been working as researcher at the Department of Applied Science and Technology of the Politecnico di Torino. Her research activity was developed not only at the Department, but also among petrochemical companies and foreign research centers, and it concerned several aspects of the safety in processing industry, both in the field of fine chemistry and in the field of basis chemistry. In particular, the chosen approach consisted of the integration of the kinetic and heat transfer aspects of a reaction with the actual characteristics of the considered plant, in order to obtain a reliable assessment of the safety condition in a productive line.

Since 2007, Micaela has been Scientific Responsible for several projects and agreements; the active ones actually are:

• Marie Curie ITN: INNHF—INNOVATION THROUGH HUMAN FACTORS IN RISK ANALYSIS AND MANAGEMENT (2011-2015) – Coordinator

• FP7 SME: TOSCA - TOTAL OPERATION MANAGEMENT FOR SAFETY CRITICAL ACTIVITIES (2013-2016)

• CS&P: Study center on Safety and Prevention culture funded by INAIL – Direzione Regionale del Piemonte

Since 2006/2007 she has been chair of the course “Environmental Safety Technique” (5 CFU: ING-IND/25) inside the Master’s degree course in “Chemical and sustainable processes engineering” of the Politecnico di Torino. In 2009, she became member of the teaching staff of the PhD course in Metrology. Since 2013, she has been vice-coordinator of the 2nd level Specializing Master in “Occupational Safety And Health Engineering” (MISO). In September 2007, Micaela was selected to be member of the Editorial Board of the Journal of Loss Prevention in the Process Industry.
