Fabrizio Bezzo is Associate Professor in Chemical Engineering at the University of Padua.

He received his degree in Chemical Engineering at the University of Padua in 1998 and obtained his PhD at Imperial College London (UK) in 2002. After working as a consultant for PSE Ltd. in London, he eventually joined the Department of Chemical Engineering (DIPIC) at the University of Padua. In 2006 he was awarded the Veneto Prize for Innovation for his work in the integration of Computational Fluid Dynamics and Process Simulation. He has served as a consultant on sustainable industrial development for the United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO).

He is the author of over 100 articles in international research journals, conference proceedings and books. He serves as a reviewer for several international scientific journals.

A list of publications can be found in the attached file.
