    Ricerca

    My scientific activity is focused on the development of theoretical models for chemical systems of environmental and biochemical relevance.
    By using tailored quantum chemical approaches and/or molecular mechanics force fields, I aim at investigating:

    - structure-function relationships in enzymatic and bioinspired catalysts for future applications in prevention and abatement of air pollution

    - adsorption and (photo)chemical transformation of low-molecular-weight molecules on particulate matter (a collaborative research effort in the context of the Departments of Excellence initiative promoted by the Italian Ministry of Education and Research)
