I am working at Paola Gori-Giorgi's group at the Department of Theoretical Chemistry of the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam. My research is founded by a Marie Skłodowska-Curie fellowship (see Press Release and MSCA-OTmeetsDFT page)
Collaborators and friends: As many of us, I am learning how to work remotely and following statistics and scientific articles regarding the SARS-CoV-2. Please do reach me if you want to discuss, share literature and support each other during these challenging times.
I did my Ph.D. degree at Università di Pisa under the supervision of Prof. Giuseppe Buttazzo.
