Degree in Chemistry, University of Milan (1989). Supervisor: Prof. Mario Raimondi.
Ph.D. in Theoretical Chemistry, University of Bristol, UK (1993). Supervisor: Dr. Joseph Gerratt.

Academic career

Post-doctoral position in the group of Prof. Giuseppe Allegra at the Milan Polytechnic (1993-1997).
Ricercatore (assistant professor) from 1997 to 2007.
Professore associato (associate professor) since November 2007.

Teaching activity

General Chemistry courses for first-year engineering students.

Research interests

* Molecular simulation with classical and quantum mechanical methods of organic materials, in particular pi-conjugated semiconductors (e.g. oligo- and polythiophenes for "organic electronics" applications).

* Statistical mechanics and simulation of polymer networks, polymers at surfaces and polymer-based nanocomposites (e.g. filled rubber).
