Giulia Galli is Professor of Chemistry at the University of California, Davis, and Associate Faculty at the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, where she was the head of the Quantum Simulations Group from 2000 to 2005.

After postdoctoral positions at the University of Illinois at Urbana Champaign and the IBM Research Division in Zurich, Giulia joined the Swiss Institute of Technology in Lausanne, where she was Senior Researcher and then Senior Scientist. In 1998 she went to LLNL as a Staff Scientist and became group leader 2 years later. In 2000, she received a Department of Energy award of excellence for technical excellence in advanced simulations, and in 2004 received the Science and Technology LLNL Award. She received a Ph.D. in Physics from the International School of Advanced Studies in Trieste, Italy in 1986. She is a Fellow of the American Physical Society and the recipient, in 2000, of a Department of Energy Award for "Technical Excellence in Advanced Simulations".  She is a fellow of the American Physical Society (APS) and 2005 Chair-Elect of the Division of Computational Physics of the APS. She serves on the executive committee of APS for the California Section, as well as on numerous national and international editorial and advisory boards.

Her current research activity is focused on quantum simulations of materials in condensed phases and at the nanoscale, with focus on interdisciplinary problems. She is the author of more than 130 peer-reviewed papers published in international scientific journals.
