Research activity

I am a researcher in the field of condensed matter. I use theoretical and computational tools to investigate the properties of hard and soft matter, including artificial and biological systems, at the nanoscale.

In our research group, we use computational tools to investigate the properties of organic, inorganic, synthetic, and biological matter. We are interested in understanding how the physicochemical characteristics of matter, such as size, composition, phase, and structure, can drive functionality at the nanoscale.

We adopt this approach to study systems with different applications: for instance, metal nanoalloys as cost-effective catalysts, monolayer-protected metal nanoparticles as biomedical therapeutic and diagnostic agents, colloidal suspensions for ceramic processing.

We develop new potential interaction models with atomistic or coarse-grained resolution. We also develop new algorithms to solve global optimization problems, and to study dynamics in more and more realistic conditions.

Research group

Our research group is the Nanobiocomp group. Please go to www.nanobiocomp.com to know more about who we are, what we do, news and events, and open positions.
