Personal profile

Personal Statement

I obtained my PhD in Nanophysics and Photonics from the University of Grenoble Alpes under the supervision of Prof. Didier Mayou and Prof. Asghar Asgari working on "Nonequilibrium Modelling of Solar Cells: Quantum Effects at the Nanoscale Level". During my PhD, I joined the group of Prof. Matthias Ernzerhof at the University of Montréal as a Visiting Scholar and got exposed to Quantum Chemistry through one of the leading scientists in the field.

To pursue my interest in cross-disciplinary and multi-methodology research, I then joined the group of Prof. Alessandro Troisi, Materials Innovation Factory - University of Liverpool, as a Postdoctoral Research Associate to work on "Computer Aided Materials Discovery". In my postdoctoral career, I was the first to demonstrate the ability to perform high-throughput virtual screening by combining chemical databases and advanced physical models. This initiative was of such importance that my work now constitutes the foundation ground of the DIADEM Materials Discovery Platform (https://www.diadem-project.eu/).

In December 2022, I further advanced my academic journey by accepting the position of Chancellor's Fellow in the Materials & Computational Chemistry division within the Department of Pure and Applied Chemistry at the University of Strathclyde.

Research Interests

I am a theoretician specialising in the development of methods that combine novel physical models with computational screening to identify advanced materials with targeted properties, determine the realistic physical limits to such properties, and drive practical materials (inverse) design strategies. Currently, my research is focused on:

  • Computational discovery and design of functional molecules and materials 
  • Charge transport properties of molecular semiconductors 
  • Optical properties of organic molecules and solids 
  • Crystal structure prediction of rigid conjugated molecules
