MONICA TRUEBA

Monica Trueba was born in Cuba (Havana) in 1970. She obtained the Bachelor degree in Chemistry in 1991 and the Master degree in 2003 at the Faculty of Chemistry of the University of Havana. In this Faculty, she was junior/assistant professor from 1998 until 2004, teaching courses of physical chemistry and of applied statistics. The scientific interests were on electrochemistry of metallic/composite and polymeric materials, focused mainly to electrocatalysis of hydrogen evolution reaction and electro(nano)polymerization of conducting polymers. At the end of 2004, she transferred to Milan (Italy). She received her doctorate degree from the Università degli Studi di Milano in 2008, working in the Department of Chemistry on the corrosion and protection of Al alloys. Currently, she is a post-doc fellow in this University. In the last years, her research interest more actively moved to corrosion and protection of light alloys. Major efforts have been dedicated to the understanding of mechanisms governing corrosion and protection. She is author or co-author of 15 peer-reviewed papers and 25 oral communications. She is a member of the American Chemical Society and of the Italian Association of Metallurgy.
