Biographical Notes


Raffaele Ragucci is a researcher at the Institute for Research on Combustion of the National Research Council (IRC-CNR) since 1988. Since 2004 he is senior researcher at the same institute.

He holds a degree in Electronic Engineering (electro-physics) at the Faculty of Engineering of the University of Naples in 1984 with a thesis carried out at the Department of Chemical Engineering on the subject of optical diagnostics atomization of liquid fuels and solid-liquid mixtures . From 1984 he was a contract researcher at the Department of Chemical Engineering Department of the University Federico II of Naples and subsequently at IRC-CNR.

He was responsible for the activities on “Production, monitoring and control of pollutants from combustion processes” at IRC-CNR. It is a member of the IRC board since 2015.

Founding member, secretary and later president of the Italian section of the Combustion Institute from 1995 to 2010.

Member of the Board of Directors of the Combustion Institute from 2010 to 2016.

Co-founder and 2003-2012 Treasurer of the 'European Institute for Liquid Atomization and Spray Systems (ILASS-EUROPE). Member of the European board since 2014.

Author of more than 50 publications in international scientific journals and more than 150 contributions in proceedings of national and international conferences.

Reviewer for all the major journals in the field of combustion. member of the International Symposium on Combustion Paper Committee since 1990. Member of the Editorial Board of the journal Atomization and Spray. Reviewer of EU projects, ERC, CNRS, FNRS, FWO and other national agencies.

He regularly gave lectures in the framework of Combustion and Combustion Effluents Reduction courses for Chemical and Mechanical Engineering students. He followed the work of preparation and was co-supervisor of some tens of dissertations and PhD thesis in Chemistry and Mechanical Engineering.
