Dr. Andrea Malizia - L.O.C President

Andrea Malizia is a Researcher in  Measures and Nuclear Instrumentations the Department of Biomedicine and Prevention, University of Rome Tor Vergata. He achieved his Bc.S. in 2003 and the Ms.S. in 2005 (cum laude) in Environmental Engineering both at the University of Rome Tor Vergata. Dr. Malizia defended his Ph.D. in Quantum Electronics and Plasma Physics in 2010 (Rank 4/4); he later achieved in 2010 the postgraduate title in Protection against CBRNe events (cum laude) at the University of Rome Tor Vergata. His research interests center on improving the understanding, design, and performance experimental set-up to analyze the mobilization of toxic dust in case of accident in the energy plants. Currently, he studies the mechanism of mobilization in case of accident like Loss Of Vacuum Accident (LOVA), Loss Of Coolant Accident (LOCA) by the mean of experimental and numerical characterization. In addition, Dr. Malizia has contributed to the development of LIDAR/DIAL systems for environmental control and military application. He cooperates with international entities (public, military, academics and private) involved in CBRNe (Chemical, Biological, Radiological, Nuclear and explosive) safety and security. 

He works on the development of methods and tecnhiques to improve mechanical and eletrical measurements for applications on energy, environment, safety and security.

He serves as Assistant Professor, since A.Y, 2013/2014, in the bachelor degree courses of Applied and Medical Physics at the Faculty of MEdicine and Surgery, University of Rome Tor Vergata.  He has scientific collaborations with: JET (Joint European Torus) Research Centre in UK; IRSN (France); University of Bristol (UK); University of Madrid (Spain); Joint Research Centre, European Commission (Ispra, Varese). He has been also visiting researcher in some of these centres. He is the Didactical Coordinator of the International Master Courses in Protection against CBRNe events since 2008, cooperating with the most important national and international entities involved in the CBRNe events.  He also serves as Tutor Assistant in the courses of Physics, Laser systems, Nuclear Fusion Energy and Measurements. Dr. Andrea Malizia is author of more than 95 scientific works on international and national Scientific Journal and Conference Proceedings; of 1 National Patent; of 1 book and he serves as lectures in the Postgraduate courses of: Chirurgia Plastica (Prof. Cervelli, University of Rome Tor Vergata) for the laser systems security in lab.; for the course of Fusion Energy - Engineering and Science (Prof. Romanelli, University of Rome Tor Vergata) . He received two National Awards for his research activities: “Premio Città e Sicurezza” (2007) and “Premio Sapio” (2011).
