Dr. Francesca Rosi is researcher at the Institute of Science and Molecular Technologies of CNR UOS of Perugia and scientific responsible of the CNR-ISTM within the project FUTURAHMA.
In 2005 she was awarded a Ph.D. in Chemistry, University of Perugia (Italy), dissertation title “Spectroscopic studies for the conservation of mural paintings” after which she had a Post Doctoral fellowship Project title: “Spectroscopic investigation on materials of Cultural Heritage interest” (2005-2008). From the 2008 to 2010 she was a Project collaborator with the National Interuniversity Consortium for Science and Technology of Materials (INSTM) Project title: “Mid infrared vibrational investigation in reflection mode through fiber optic sampling probe”. From November 2010 to October 2011 she was a Post Doc fellow with CNR-ISTM Project title: “Spectroscopic study of the pigment effect on the stability of synthetic polymers used as binders in modern paintings”. She is an expert on advanced spectroscopic methods for the study of Cultural Heritage materials with a particular focus on non-invasive portable systems. She has participated and participates to the following national and international projects such as HEROMAT, IT@CHA, CHARISMA ed Eu-ARTECH.
