I got the Physics degree in Modena (Italy) in 1981 and I am CNR researcher since 1986. I am working in computational solid state theory and in particular my research activity is focused on the study of electronic and structural properties of semiconductor surfaces and interfaces, including the solid/liquid interface, via first principal molecular dynamics at finite temperature.
My present activity is devoted to the understanding of adsorption mechanisms for selected atomic and molecular species at wide gap semiconductor surfaces and nanostructures, such as Silicon Carbide, the Nitrides and Zinc Oxide. Some recent results regard the simulation of SiC fracture; SiC homo- and heteroepitaxy; and the interaction with water and other small molecules containing H, C, N, and O species, towards the study of organic/inorganic interactions (see Highlights, and the list of recent publications).
Main interest: Electronic properties of compound semiconductors
Theses are available for both topics.
