Portrait of Researcher, Dr Davide Bernardo Preso


Davide Bernardo Preso

Postdoctoral Research Assistant


Dr. Davide Bernardo Preso is a Postdoctoral Research Assistant at the Phisical Acoustics Laboratory, working on a EPSRC-funded project about catalytic sonochemical processes for green hydrogen production from ammonia. He obtained his BSc and MSc in Chemical Engineering from the University of Bologna (Italy). After a short stay as a Scientific Assistant at ETH Zurich (Switzerland), working on the development of an ammonia-based CO2-capture process, he joined EPFL (Switzerland) as a Doctoral Assistant. Here, he received his PhD in Mechanics with a work on the effect of gas and vapor on the dynamics of single cavitation bubbles. His current interests include sonochemical conversion of water, ammonia, and carbon dioxide, and phase change effects in cavitation bubbles.
