Visiting the Department of Chemistry
from 26/09/2023 to 27/10/2023
Host professor Luciano Galantini  
We aim to combine the expertise of the host and the guest, to develop soft matter-directed chiral seeded growth on anisotropic nanocrystals. Different morphologies of supramolecular structures of bile salts and derivatives will be tested as templating agents of inorganic noble metal nanoparticles. Possibilities to further adjust the soft architectures to the reaction environment and inorganic reagents will be explored, by doping the bile salt structure with organic additives, as well as other typologies of surfactants or chiral molecules. Synthesis both in aqueous and organic solvent environments will be tested.

He is a founding member (1995) of the CREDO, the French Center for Pacific Studies CREDO (AMU-CNRS-EHESS). His works (over ten books and hundred articles) bring together the results of his field enquiries in Western Polynesia (Sāmoa) during the decades 1980–1990 and an ethno-historical critique of European inventions (16th-20th centuries) about Polynesia: mainly settlement and “races”, fabrications about first encounters with Westerners (the myth of the “Vahine” and the silence on the initial violence), misunderstandings about political systems, about hierarchies in Polynesian systems and, more recently, misunderstandings about “gender” relations (particularly regarding the “gender-variant” communities).

Prof. Jon DiCicco
Middle Tennessee State University, United States
Visiting the  Department of Political Sciences from  10/05/2023 to 09/06/2023
Host Professor: Prof. Gabriele Natalizia
The primary purpose of the visit is to accelerate and expand collaborative research with Professor Gabriele Natalizia and Lorenzo Termine on the subject of revisionism in international relations. We conduct qualitative research on the activities of "revisionist states" in the current international system -- that is, countries seemingly intent on reforming or disrupting the international order or "status quo." Our shared approach involves historically grounded analysis of rhetoric, decisions, and actions by the governments of states widely regarded as revisionist, including China and Russia. From this research, and with the cooperation of the Centro Studi sulla Geopolitica e le Relazioni Internazionali, we will generate publications intended for scholarly and policy-oriented audiences. Policy implications of our collaborative research are timely and relevant to international security at the global and regional levels, as well as to NATO's evolving strategies in Europe and the Indo-Pacific. A secondary purpose of the visit is for Dr. DiCicco to meet and speak with students and to give guest lectures in relevant courses taught by Professor Natalizia.

Host Professor: Prof. Giuseppe Ricotta

Over the last two decades Sociology has been the arena of fierce debates about its meaning and its future. The so-called "studies" - racial, feminist, post-colonial, etc - points to the fact that the social sciences have been marked by injustices of various kinds. On the other hand, such criticism is taken as a threat to disciplinary identity. As an effort to reconcile these positions, several authors have tried to take seriously the critiques made by the studies and to think of ways to transform sociology, without making it disappear. I propose to address these issues taking on two central references, the "Critical Theory of Coloniality" and the Habermasian concept of "complementary learning". A mediation of this concept will be constructed in order to think about the process of cross-fertilization between the thought developed in the North and in the global South in a symmetrical and joint manner.

Host Professor: Prof. Lidia Piccioni

The visit is dedicated to the construction of a research project on voluntary associations for the protection and enhancement of the historical, artistic and landscape heritage that were established in Rome and Florence between the end of the nineteenth century and the early years of the twentieth century. By intersecting urban history, the history of heritage and that of urban planning, the ambition is to account for how a new way of looking at the ancient city has fueled a rich and complex reflection on the future of the modern one. Participation in educational activities and seminars completes the ones planned during the visit.

Pure paraffin fuel was manufactured as pristine samples. Activated charcoal was blended with paraffin fuel formulations. The paraffin-based fuel composition was combusted with four different oxidiser mass flux. The ballistic performance was evaluated through local regression rates, average regression rates, combustion pressure and thrust.

Host Professor: Prof. Fabiola Colone

In this project we investigate techniques for radar-based human activity monitoring and classification that are alternative to the conventional usage of dedicated active radar systems and related micro-Doppler processing. Specifically, commercial Wi-Fi systems and signals will be used, which are now ubiquitous in many indoor and outdoor environments, instead of dedicated active radars that need to be deployed ad-hoc. Furthermore, in terms of classification approaches, we propose to investigate changes of the amplitude modulations as well as polarimetric responses over time, induced by the movements of human subjects in the area under test. This is an alternative approach to the usage of micro-Doppler analysis that would require more expensive hardware and synchronisation techniques to guarantee stable and reliable coherency properties of the phase of the received signals.
