Full Professor of Environmental Chemistry at the University of Perugia. Coordinator of the Environmental Chemistry and Technology (ECT) research group. Member of the Italian Glaciological Committee (CGI) and Italian Aerosol Society (IAS). He participated in several Italian Arctic Expeditions (2011-2019). Italian delegate at the Arctic Science Forum Ministerial (Berlin, 2018).
Co-author of more than 150 scientific ISI publications, including well-renowned international journals of high impact factor (such as Nature, Angewandte Chemie, Journal of the American Chemical Society, Physical Review Letters, Atmospheric Chemistry and Physics). He has contributed to important review papers (Accounts of Chemical Research, International Reviews in Physical Chemistry, Progress in Surface Science, Advances in Quantum Chemistry).
Lead Editor of the Special Issues "Environmental Changes in the Arctic: an Italian Perspective" appeared on Rendiconti Lincei (2016, Springer) and "Mineral Dust: Sources, Atmospheric Processing and Impacts" appeared on Atmosphere (2018, MDPI).
Research in the ECT group is based on the chemical and morphological characterization of atmospheric aerosols in the urban, remote and indoor environments, vertical profile measurements of aerosol properties by tethered balloon experiments and aerosol source apportionment methodologies, implementation and optimization of chemical transport models (Lagrangian and Eulerian).
I am a computational chemist and Assistant Professor in the Department for Chemical and Environmental Engineering at the University of Nottingham. My research activities all share the motivation to bring the power of computational chemistry to new chemical problems, to fundamentally understand properties and functions of organic (macro)molecules, to reveal hidden chemical questions and to promote solutions for chemical challenges and focus on the development and application of efficient and transferable computational techniques.
Past and present research involved multi-disciplinary research in the areas of biotechnology, catalysis, bio-organic, colloid, and radical chemistry, molecular self-assembly and supramolecular chemistry, ion effects, and molecular electronics in organic electronic devices.
Following my undergraduate studies of Molecular Science I received my PhD in Computational Chemistry from the University of Erlangen-Nuernberg, Germany in 2010. I then worked as a Postdoc for the Cluster of Excellence Engineering Advanced Materials (EAM) until 2014, when I joined the Sustainable Process Technology (SPT) Research Group in in the Faculty of Engineering of the University of Nottingham, first as an EU and UoN funded fellow, then as faculty member.
Dr. Jovan Nedeljković got his bachelor degree at the Faculty of the physical chemistry of the Belgrade University in 1984, and since then he has been employed in the Institute of nuclear sciences Vinča in Belgrade. Dr. Nedeljković obtained his Ph.D. degree in 1991 at the Clarkson University, Potsdam, USA. After that Dr. Nedeljković returned to the Institute of nuclear sciences Vinča, and in 1999 he was appointed as researcher professor. Dr. Nedeljković is the principal investigator in the field of nanomaterials. He has extensive international collaboration, and he worked in Argonne National Laboratories, and National Renewable Energy Laboratory. Under his supervision, 12 Ph.D. students graduated. Dr. Jovan Nedeljković published more than 170 scientific papers. Papers published by Dr. Nedeljković have been cited more than 6000 times, and his h-index is 40. Dr. Nedeljković is a referee for many journals. Dr. Nedeljković main research interest includes the development of colloidal methods for synthesis of nanoparticles of different type of materials. His research goal is to obtain nanoparticles with high uniformity and controllable shape (spheres, rods, wires, tubes), as well as to understand the size- and shape-dependent properties of materials at nano-scale. Also, the research interest of Dr. Nedeljković is a synthesis of nanocomposite materials using nanoparticles as building blocks (polymer-based nanocomposites, functionalized textile fibers, thin films, etc.).
