Silvia Marola graduated in Materials Science in 2016 from the Chemistry Department of the University of Turin. In 2020, at the same university, she obtained her Ph.D. in Chemical and Materials Sciences with a thesis entitled "Aluminum alloys for Additive Manufacturing: alloys microstructure, rapid solidification processes, testing of products".
In 2020 she was the holder of a research grant at the Chemistry Department of the University of Turin and focused her research activity on the analysis of the residual stresses developing in Al-Si alloys during Powder Bed Additive Manufacturing processes.
From November 2020 to August 2022, she worked as postdoc researcher at the Italian Institute of Technology Center for Sustainable Future Technologies (IIT CSFT@Polito) located in Turin with the task of implementing the research activity related to the identification 3D printing processes suitable for the production of ceramic, polymeric and metal components and subsystems for RF/microwave applications in the space sector in the frame of a commercial contract funded by the European Space Agency (ESA).
Since September 2022, she has been working as a RTDA researcher at the Department of Mechanical Engineering, Materials for Mechanical Applications Section of the Milan Polytechnic developing metal alloys for innovative processes.
Her main research activities concern the development and characterization of metal alloys, mainly aluminum-based, subjected to rapid solidification processes. During her research she paid particular attention to microstructural refinement, the formation of metastable and nanocrystalline phases, and the presence of residual stresses.
Co-author of more than 5 publications in scientific journals, he has participated in numerous national and international conferences.
