Laboratory manager – Prof G. di Bella
Associate professor (SSD. icar03) at the architecture and engineering faculty of uke. Lecturer in “sanitary-environmental engineering” and “advanced solid waste treatment” in the degree course in civil and environmental engineering, “advanced water processes”, and “contaminated site remediation” in the degree course in civil engineering. Coordinator and member of numerous scientific committees of university masters and post-graduate training courses.
Since 2012 he has been the coordinator of numerous institutional assignments at uke. In addition, he has participated directly in the drafting of numerous conventions, which were then submitted for signature to the lawyer, being “responsible” for all conventions/accounts for actions concerning environmental health engineering and related to l.i.s.a.
Regularly carries out supplementary activities and support for teaching and research and is responsible for and/or a member of national and international interest research projects.
He is the author of more than 140 publications on environmental health engineering topics, published in national and international journals, books and conference proceedings, and numerous publications and reports for scientific and educational purposes. The publications cover the topics of interest: wastewater treatment, analysis and control of water bodies, waste management and remediation of contaminated sites, water supply, and urban drainage.
Head of quality and chemical analysis – Dr Ing M.G. Giustra
Maria Gabriella Giustra (piazza Armerina, 1975), graduated in engineering for the environment and territory at the University of Catania. she obtained her doctorate at the same university discussing her thesis “study on the influence of process parameters in a desorption system at laboratory scale”. Since 2012 she has been a research fellow in environmental health engineering at the kore University of Enna.
In the time spent at the faculty mentioned above, he carried out research activities at the environmental health engineering laboratory. In the same laboratory, he acted as co-rapporteur to draft several experimental theses and tutored engineering students in the internship phase. In addition, he coordinated and managed laboratory activities regarding research and third-party activities. He collaborated in several third-party monitoring and environmental remediation activities on solid and liquid matrices.
Worked on several research projects on the remediation of contaminated sites and the treatment of civil and industrial wastewater to design and construct several laboratory-scale plants. He has been assisting and collaborating as a tutor in the course of “advanced processes and treatments of solid waste” (Bachelor’s degree course in environmental civil engineering) and the course of “remediation of contaminated sites” (Master’s degree course in civil engineering). Since 2010 he has been a lecturer in environmental health engineering icar 03. he has participated in several conferences as a speaker and published scientific articles.
Head of microbiological analysis – Dr G. Rabbeni
