Background and activities

Italian, M.Sc. in Chemistry (1994), Ph.D (2001), a chemist with a strong focus on polymer composites and environmental impact including LCA/LCC. From 2001 she holds a PhD in Chemistry of Polymer Composites, carried out in the Wilton International Research Centre (UK), within the Strategic Technology Group of ICI (Imperial Chemical Industries), for about three years. Prof. La Rosa has started her education on LCA and LCC in 2006 through a research visit at the Division of Environmental Systems, Chalmers University of Technology, Gothenburg, and by attending an advanced course in Life Cycle Assessment at the Royal Institute of Technology (KTH) Stockholm, Sweden. Since then, she has published several articles on LCA of polymers and polymer composites. Prof. La Rosa has long experience from national and European research and innovation projects, being the scientific director of S.C. All Green S.R.L. company (Romania) since 2016, she is an author of over 50 articles in journals and conference proceedings (H-index: 13, Scopus) as well as possesses long experience with student supervision (>50 undergraduate and postgraduate students).
