Education

Short bio:

After the Master Degree in Chemistry at Parma University (Italy), with a Physical Chemistry curriculum, in 2011 received his PhD in Chemical Sciences in the same university as both experimentalist and theoretician working on a  thesis project "Charge and energy transfer in functional molecular materials: spectroscopy and models". From 2011 to 2013 he was Post-doc at the University of Mons (Belgium) in the "Chemistry of Novel Material" group of prof. D Beljonne and J. Cornil, where he was involved in two UE projects (OneP, MMM@HPC), working mainly in the field of organic molecular electronic (development of computational approaches for charge and exciton transport in molecular materials). From 2013 to 2016 Luca was Post-doc at the "International Centre for Theoretical Physics" (ICTP) in Trieste, (Italy) working in computational material science and biophysics, including modeling of biomaterial and biomolecule from morphology to electronic structure and optical properties. From December 2016 to September 2018 he has joined SISSA (Trieste, Italy) as a Post-doc, working on modeling and computation of optical properties of bio-molecules. He joined IRB in October 2018. Beyond academics, he is interested in science communication and dissemination.
