Here’s a couple of facts about me,

I am a postdoc researcher in Mainz, Germany, at the Max Planck Institute For Polymer Research.

My research focuses on complex molecular systems, such as polymers, liquids and crystals. More in particular, I develop and apply computational methods to help us understand the physics and chemistry underlying these systems.

I am Italian, and studied physics in Milan, at the University of Milano-Bicocca. I have a B. Sc. in physics (2006), and a M.Sc. in theoretical physics (quarks, gluons ecc…), which I’ve earned in 2009.

After that, I did my PhD studies. I haven’t changed university, but I’ve changed field of study, switching to laser-plasma acceleration.

After I got my PhD, another change. This time I’ve moved to Lugano, in Switzerland, to work as a postdoc in the group of Prof. Parrinello, where I’ve met molecular simulations. There, I have been developing methods for simulations of liquid and crystalline systems, e.g. for computing and controlling chemical potentials.

I have moved to Mainz in February 2017, where I have extended my interests to the protein and bio-polymer world. Since April ‘18 I am the Principal Investigator of a Marie Skłodowska-Curie action, GOKNOT, focused on the multi-scale study of entangled protein folding.
