Modelling of excited states in reducible oxides

IQTC, Universitat de Barcelona, Spain

Dipartimento di Scienza dei Materiali, Università di Milano-Bicocca, Italy 

tosoniSergio Tosoni was born in Torino, Italy, in 1979. He obtained his Ph.D. in Chemistry from the University of Torino in 2007 under the supervision of Prof. Piero Ugliengo. After three years as a postdoctoral fellow with Prof. Joachim Sauer at the Humboldt University in Berlin, and in the group of Prof. Francesc Illas at the University of Barcelona, he is currently working at Dipartimento di Scienza dei Materiali at the University of Milano-Bicocca. His research interests concern the modeling of structural, chemical and electronic properties of oxides. >>>
