Buscaglia Vincenzo has been working at CNR since 1985 and has been the leader of research activities and projects on electroceramics for many years. His interest is mainly focused on liquid-phase synthesis of perovskite oxides, processing and properties of functional ceramics and, more generally, on composition-microstructure-property relationships in dielectric and ferroelectric ceramic materials. He has authored more than 160 papers on JCR journals with about 6000 citations. Buscaglia Vincenzo is also senior editor of Journal of the European Ceramic Society and lecturer of the course “Introduction to functional ceramic materials” at the Doctoral School in Chemical and Materials Sciences and Technologies of the University of Genoa.
