About me

After obtaining my M.Sc. in 2008 in experimental physics at the Catholic University (Brescia, Italy), I moved to Helsinki University of technology for my Ph.D. studies in computational physics, which continued and completed in Tampere University of Technology (2012). Soon after graduating I joined in Prof. Alex Shluger's group as a postdoctoral research associate, stationed in the advanced institute for material research (WPI-AIMR) in Tohoku University (Sendai, Japan).

Research

The current project is aimed at understanding the properties of ionic liquids confined between two surfaces and their role in determining their lubricity. The dynamical behaviour of the system is studied with atomistic molecular dynamics calculations, although quantum mechanical methods are also applied in order to provide a better description of the liquid-surface interaction.
