Dominique Scalarone graduated with honours in Chemistry in 1998. From 1998 to 2001 she carried out research activity on the characterisation and ageing behaviour of natural and synthetic organic painting materials at the University of Torino and at the Institute for Atomic and Molecular Physics (AMOLF) in Amsterdam (The Netherlands). In 2001 she obtained her PhD in Chemistry and in 2005 she became Assistant Professor at the Department of Chemistry of the University of Torino continuing her studies on organic painting materials and extending her research interests to high-performance protective coatings and nanomaterials for an effective removal of emerging pollutants. Since 2018 she is Associate Professor in the academic discipline “Chemistry for the Environment and for Cultural Heritage”. From 2018 to 2021 she coordinated the European project CAPuS, Conservation of Art in Public Spaces (Erasmus Plus - Knowledge Alliances), whose main aims were the definition of guidelines for the conservation and protection of urban artworks and the design of a multidisciplinary training module on urban art conservation. Ongoing projects concern the development of sustainable conservation strategies for street art, the study of the vulnerability to degradation of art materials, the development of analytical protocols to evaluate the effectiveness of conservation treatments. Dominique collaborates with numerous Italian and foreign research institutes and groups. She authored and co-authored more than 70 refereed publications including research articles on international scientific journals and 4 book chapters.
