Francesco Chiabrera obtained his bachelor and master degree at Politecnico di Torino in Energy and nuclear engineering. The degree course deals with physical and chemical processes occurring in the energy transformation from fuel to power. After the degree, he decided to dedicate to the study of Micro Solid Oxide Fuel Cells, where he could find a perfect application of the elements of thermodynamics, material science and mechanical engineering assimilated during his studies. He defended his PhD at IREC about the improvement of the cathode performance in Micro Solid Oxide Fuel Cells and in the study of interface dominated solid oxides thin films in June 2019 .
