Maria Luisa Di Vona is presently Professor of Chemistry at the University of Rome “Tor Vergata”. She leads the scientific research group on Ionomer Materials for Energy at the Department of Industrial Engineering.
MLDV obtained her “Laurea” diploma in Chemistry “Cum Laude” at the University of Rome La Sapienza in 1984.

She received the same year a post-doctoral fellowship from ENI-CNR/ENEA on “High capacity organic cathodes for primary and secondary lithium batteries”. In 1987, MLDV became researcher at the University of Rome “Tor Vergata”.

She was visiting professor at the Institute for Materials Science NIMS, Japan (2010) and at the University of Aix-Marseille, France (2017 and 2020).
MLDV is principal investigator of several Research Projects (HORIZON 2020, EU FP7, MIUR) and Educational Projects (EU PostDoc Program, PhD and PostDoc co-tutela Programs) and is the Italian Coordinator of the Erasmus Mundus Joint Master Degree “Chemical Nano-Engineering”. Since 2015, she is responsible of the International Laboratory on Ionomer Materials “LIME” between University of Rome “Tor Vergata” and Aix-Marseille University, France.

MLDV is the principal organizer of many international symposia on materials for energy storage and conversion and member of the organizing and scientific committees for different scientific societies. She is member of the editorial boards of international journals, including Molecules and Frontiers in Energy Research.
Her research activity is focused on the development of solid state ionic conductors for energy applications (fuel cells, electrolysers, redox flow batteries, batteries) including the synthesis and characterization of ionomers and organic-inorganic hybrid materials, as well as the nanoscale synthesis of carbon materials.
She published 186 articles (148 in international journals, 6 book chapters, 2 books, 3 patents, 27 publications in proceedings) and held numerous keynote and invited talks at international congresses.
