Curriculum Vitae
Dr. Alfonso Zoleo graduated in Chemistry in 1995 with 110/110, with a thesis on the electron paramagnetic resonance applied to anionic derivatives of fullerenes. From 1997 to 2000 he did his Ph.D. in Chemistry on the same subject . From 2000 to 2001 he was a member of TMR project on photosynthesis at the Max Volmer Institut in Berlin, devoting himself to focus high frequency ENDOR instrumentation, for the survey of the complex evolution of oxygen (OEC ). From 2001 to 2004 he received a scholarship and a research grant for the application of advanced EPR techniques (ESEEM, ENDOR) in the investigation of the catalytic sites in the enzyme ATPase. From 2005 to 2008 he won several grants for collaboration INSTM EPR on the characterization of low-dimensional magnetic materials and molecules with open shell in confined systems. Since 2008, he began working independently on its own line of research devoted to spectroscopy in Cultural Heritage, using spectroscopic techniques for ancient and modern paper material, glassy and ceramic materials, and establishing major collaborations with other Departments of the University, as well as important international collaborations. Since 2010 he is assistant professor at the Department of Chemistry.

Research areas
Advanced EPR techniques in the characterization of Cultural Heritage materials
Spectroscopic applications on archival materials (EPR, FORS, Raman, SERS, ATRIR on ancient inks, paper, illuminated manuscripts)
Nanostructured material applications (nanocellulose and silicatic polymers) for conservation/restoration of ancient/degraded paper materials
