Mirella Di Lorenzo
Mirella’s expertise lies at the interface of bioelectrochemistry, microengineering, microfluidics, sensing technology and material science. Her work addresses development challenges such as the water-energy-food security and global health, by developing eco-friendly and sustainable solutions affordable to all. Her research focuses particularly on the development of innovative biological fuel cell (BFC) designs for either energy harvesting, water quality monitoring or healthcare applications and on low-cost designs that can lead to devices affordable everywhere in the world. As such, she explores the uses of recyclable, biodegradable and low-cost materials.
