Marco Lauricella, PhD in Physics (University College of Dublin), graduated in Chemistry at “La Sapienza” University of Rome, is NANO-JETS post doc fellow at CNR-IAC, and member of the Complex Systems in Fluid Dynamics and Biology group working in the field of electrospinning of polymer nanofibers. His expertise is in atomistic computational methods, both quantum and classical. In particular he studied diatomic molecules containing heavy elements. He investigated relativistic effects on molecular dissociation energies via the Dirac equation, elucidating the chemical stability of many compounds of industrial interest. In the framework of statistical physics, he studied rare events via advanced sampling methods. His research interests include transition phase processes, and particularly nucleation phenomena of clathrate compounds. In this framework he also developed a new cluster analysis algorithm for the automatic recognition of clathrate structures. In 2014 he started to work on models of polymer nanofibers and electrospinning processes, in the framework of the ERC NANO-JETS project.
