Main Research Fields

My current research focuses on computational chemical and biological physics of condensed molecular systems, such as liquids, macromolecules and interfaces, using a wide variety of methods ranging from first principles molecular dynamics, to force field-based and mixed Quantum Mechanics/ Molecular Mechanics -based MD. Current projects includes: (i) understanding structure and reactivity of interfaces, with particular focus on oxide/water, water/vapour and water/hydrophobic interfaces; (ii) vibrationalmspectroscopy from first principles, in particular surface specific Sum Frequency Generation from Molecular dynamics simulations
