Enrico Lavagna


My background is in Physics, in which I got my Master's Degree and PhD. As a researcher, I use molecular dynamics simulations and enhanced sampling techniques to model the behavior of complex nano-biological interfaces. My research focuses on the aggregation of synthetic or biological nanomaterials, particularly biomedical functionalized nanoparticles, and biological membranes. I am experienced in mentoring and supervising junior researchers. Moreover, I often worked as a tutor and assistant teacher for younger students in physics and engineering courses.
