I obtained my BSc, MSc (2001), and PhD (2005) in Chemistry in Bologna. I worked as research associate at the Surface Science Research Centre (University of Liverpool, UK: 2005-2009), and at the Institute for Scientific and Industrial Research (Osaka University, Japan: 2009-2010) in collaboration with the Department of Physics and Astronomy of University College London (UCL, London, UK). In 2010 I was awarded a five-year EPSRC-UK Career Acceleration Fellowship (CAF) at the Department of Chemistry of the University of Liverpool. I currently hold a Senior Lectureship at the Stephenson Institute for Renewable Energy, Department of Chemistry. My research is focused on the development and application of computational methods for fundamental research in energy and functional interfaces.
