Research interests

Theoretical-computational investigation of complex biomolecular systems with classical and hybrid quantum/classical methodologies.

Calculation of UV-VIS and IR spectra and investigation of their correlation with the structural organization and dynamic behaviour of biomolecular systems.

Investigation of the kinetics and thermodynamics of charge transfer reactions in complex systems in general and in proteins in particular.
