Dr. Hurisso holds a Ph.D. degree from University of Nottingham, England, in 2011.

He has more than 15 years of experience working in sustainable chemical technologies. He is an expert in developing sustainable innovative technologies for the 
systematic breakdown of non-food biomass and non-recyclable waste materials for the production of green chemicals and clean fuels. He has designed and developed many homogeneous catalytic systems for depolymerization of biomaterials from forest products to obtain platform chemicals for industrial and pharmaceutical applications. In addition, he has a great hands-on experience in design and synthesis of ionic liquids from amino acids, which has a potential of applications as materials for electrode surface modifications and data storage.

Dr. Hurisso’s recent industrial-academic research activities are on (1) processing and characterization of biomass for 3D printing applications, (2) develop an on-site system for thermochemical processing of domestic waste (an international collaboration), and (3) upgrade the bio-oils obtained from pyrolysis of low-value feedstocks.


Since 2012, Dr. Hurisso has been working as a research associate in Singer Research Group, Atlantic Centre for Green Chemistry, Chemistry Department, Saint Mary's University, Nova Scotia, Canada.
