Career Highlights

BACKGROUND

Alessandro Troisi received his PhD in Physical Chemistry (2001) from the University of Bologna with a thesis on the charge transfer reactions in condensed phases. He became interested in the field of Molecular Electronic since his postdoctoral period at the Northwestern University (2002-2003) where he worked on the description of the electron transport through flexible molecules and developed a model for inelastic tunneling spectroscopy.
In 2004-2005 he was a research fellow at the University of Bologna where he studied the charge transport mechanism in organic solid crystals. He joined the Department of Chemistry of the University of Warwick in October 2005 as a Research Council UK Fellow. His research interests include electron transport through single molecules and electronics materials, electron-phonon interactions, charge transfer reaction in condensed phase and biomolecules, electronic spectroscopy, theory of self-assembly and complexity in chemistry. Alessandro employs a broad range of computational chemistry methods but he focuses mostly on the theories linking computable quantities with experimental observables.
