Curriculum Vitae
Fabrizio Bezzo is Associate Professor in Chemical Engineering at the University of Padua.

He received his degree in Chemical Engineering at the University of Padua in 1998 and obtained his PhD at Imperial College London (UK) in 2002. After working as a consultant for PSE Ltd. in London, he eventually joined the Department of Industrial Engineering at the University of Padua. In 2014 he was awarded the Model-Based Innovation Prize for the paper "A model-based approach to the automatic diagnosis of von Willebrand disease". He has served as a consultant on sustainable industrial development for the United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO). He co-chairs the Energy Section of the European Federation of Chemical Engineers (EFCE).

He is the author of over 140 articles in international research journals, conference proceedings and books. He serves as a reviewer for several international scientific journals.
