Vincenzo Naddeo joined the Department of Civil Engineering at University of Salerno in 2006, after earning his MSc degree with honors in Civil Engineering, and his Ph.D. in Civil and Environmental Engineering. From 2014 dr. Naddeo is associate professor in Sanitary Environmental Engineering. He is expert of the European Union from 2007 in the seventh Framework Programme for Research (FP7) first and now in Horizon 2020.

Dr. Naddeo is an expert in advanced physical/chemical treatment processes in general, with research interests in the behaviour emerging contaminants and its removal from water and wastewater, and in the development of ultrasound-based processes for removal of organic pollutants, pathogens, and other contaminants from solutions. For the past 5 years, an additional research focus of Dr. Naddeo work has been on environmental odour characterization and control and on environmental impact assessment (EIA).

In addition to the topics noted above, Dr. Naddeo has published research on MBRs, control of fouling in wastewater ultrafiltration, conventional water/wastewater disinfection, monitoring of river water quality, , strategic environmental assessment (SEA) and control of NOM in drinking water. 

In addition to his research activities, since 2006 is a member of the scientific board of the Ph.D school in Civil Environmental Engineering at University of Salerno, where he has held the position of secretary of the PhD school from 2006 to 2011. He is the coordinator of several research projects and agreements and member of the editorial board in 5 international peer reviewed journals.  Dr. Naddeo was visiting scientist at different foreign research institution where he collaborated with high-ranking professor; the most significant experiences were developed at: University of Washington (Seattle); Yamaguchi University (Japan) BogaziƧi University (Istanbul); University of Cairo (Egypt); Indian Istitute of Technology (IIT) of Dheli (India).

Dr. Naddeo has published almost hundred refereed publications in ISI journals, congress proceedings and written an international handbook on Odour Impact Assessment (Wiley, 2013); he have 4 patents on water and wastewater treatments by sonolisys and 1 patent on novel electronic nose (e.Nose).
