Present Position
- Since Sep 2014 – Research Fellow  UNIMORE  Modena, IT

Research Interests
My research interests involve transport in nano-junctions with diverse active elements (superconductors, molecules, nanowires), physical properties of confined few-atoms systems in presence of interaction and recently Transparent Conductive Oxides (TCO).

The theoretical investigations are based on non-equilibrium Green function, Master-Equation Techniques, Configuration Interaction methods and recently Density Functional Theory approaches.
