Dr. Luca Porcarelli earned his BS in Material Chemistry and his MS in Photochemistry and Molecular Materials from the University of Bologna.

In 2013, he joined Politecnico di Torino (PoliTo) where he developed his PhD entitled “A new paradigm towards advanced Li-based batteries: a true polymeric approach” under the supervision of Prof. Claudio Gerbaldi.

During this period he spent an 11 month stay at POLYMAT as a visiting student under the supervision of Prof. David Mecerreyes, studying Single-Ion Conducting Polymer Electrolytes for application in energy conversion and storage devices.

In 2016, he obtained his Ph.D. degree from PoliTo and was also awarded from Associazione Italiana Chimica per Ingegneria (AICIng) for his PhD thesis.


Since April 2016, he joined the Innovative Polymers Group of POLYMAT as a post-doctoral researcher continuing his work on materials for lithium batteries.

Currently, he is also developing polyelectrolytes for applications in bioelectronics.
