Dr. Naddeo is associate professor at Department of Civil Engineering of the University of Salerno (Italy) where he drives research activities at the Sanitary Environmental Engineering Division (SEED).
He is co-founding Chair of the conference series WaterEnergyNEXUS and is actively involved in a variety of scientific organizations, funding agencies, and European networks.
His research focuses on water/wastetater treatment, recovery of energy form waste, control of environmental odors and environmental impact assessment (EIA). He developed advanced biological processes for wastewater treatment and control of emerging contaminants, novel ultrasound-based technological processes for the treatment of environmental matrices (solid, liquid and gaseous) and biotechnologies for wastewater re-use with simultaneous energy production.
In addition to the topics above, Dr. Naddeo has published works on membrane bioreactors (MBRs), Advanced Oxidation Processes (AOPs), river water quality characterization, remediation of contaminated soil, management & treatment of the organic fraction of solid waste, strategic environmental assessment (SEA) & recently on the environmental technologies for the sustainable development of smart cities.
He is the coordinator of international & national research projects, supervisor of PhD students and a member of scientific boards of several national and international conferences where he has often been invited as a plenary or keynote speaker.
