Mr Matteo Errigo
Mr Matteo Errigo profile picture
  • Postgraduate Teaching Assistant
  • Dept of Chemical Engineering
  • Faculty of Engineering Science

I have graduated in a MSc on Energy and Nuclear Engineering with a double degree between the Polytechnic University of Turin and Grenoble INP - Phelma.

The studies I carried out provided me with strong bases on generic scientific and engineering subjects, such as physics, maths and problem solving, but also with the knowledge of more specific topics related to energy and nuclear engineering, such as heat transfer, thermal hydraulics and reactor physics.

During my Bachelor's at the Polytechnic University of Turin, I had the honour to be part of the Young Talents programme, which consisted in additional courses and extracurricular activities reserved for the students with the best academic results in the university.

I have been part of the Italian scout association AGESCI for many years, first as a boy scout and then as a scout leader, being responsible for the organisation of educational activities and for the bookkeeping of the scout group. During my spare time I also enjoy practicing sport, especially basketball and climbing.

The first insight I had into scientific research was during my Master's internship at the French Alternative Energies and Atomic Energy Commission (CEA), which awakened my passion for research.

Research Summary
My research focuses on the thermal hydraulics of fluidized-bed reactors. Throughout my PhD, I will be studying, mostly from an experimental point of view, the motion of bed particles as well as the heat transfer and the temperature distribution inside a fluidized bed. The main techniques I will be using are x-ray imaging, infrared imaging and acoustic emission

Specifically, some operational problems typical in fluidized-bed reactors, such as agglomeration and defluidization will be at the forefront of my focus.
