Research interests

Density Functional Theory


Born in 1981 in Cremona, I obtained the bachelor in physics at Università Cattolica del Sacro Cuore in Brescia. After a short internship in the Max-Planck-Institut in Göttingen, I began to work as a entrepreneur for two years, working with private and public companies and developing two patents on high-tech devices. In 2006 I decided to continue my education with a master degree in theoretical physics at Università di Trieste, finished in 2008 "cum laude" and followed by a PhD at SISSA that will end in 2012. My field of activity is now focused on research in material science based on numerical modeling at the atomistic scale. Winner of 2009 StartCUP FVG competition for the most innovative start-up idea; organizer of TEDxTrieste; co-director at the Master in Complex Actions, business school oriented to young scientists; project manager of FoodCAST, a national research project focus on building quantitative forecasting technologies on commodities markets; co-director of the Quantum ESPRESSO Foundation.
