Annalisa Cardellini

Research Affiliate

B. Tech. in Energetic Engineering, Politecnico di Torino (2010)
M. S. in Energetic and Nuclear Engineering, Politecnico di Torino (2013)


Annalisa is currently studying the interaction potential between nanoparticles in aqueous solution. She is focusing on the role of hydration forces and steric repulsions operating as the suspended particles approach. She is also interested in understanding the aggregation kinetics of coated nanoparticles, including how it affects the thermo-physical properties of nanofluids in energy applications. When not carrying out research, she likes cooking and travelling.
