Maria Rosaria Caputo earned her B. Sc. in Industrial Chemistry by the University of Naples ''Federico II'' in June 2016. The bachelor thesis project focused on the study of the structure and the morphology of isotactic polypropylene from Ziegler-Natta catalysis in presence of nucleating agents.

In March 2019 she obteined her Master Degree in Science and Technology of Industrial Chemistry (Polymers Science Curriculum) by the University of Naples ''Federico II''.  This project focused on the morphology of multiblock ethylene/1-octene copolymers from ''chain-shuttling'' polymerization.

Both the projects have been carried out under the supervision of Professors C. De Rosa, F. Auriemma and R. Di Girolamo.

Since November 2019 she is a Ph.D. student in Polymer Science at POLYMAT under the supervision of Professor A.J. Müller and Dr. H. Sardon.


Past research has concerned the characterization of thermoplastic and elastomeric materials, based on polyolefins, using various techniques in order to understand the complex molecular structure of this kind of materials.

The current Ph.D. research concerns the study, synthesis and characterization of semi-crystalline aliphatic polyesters.
