I am a Senior Research Scientist, Fellow of the Institute of Physics and Honorary Lecturer at the 
Department of Chemical Engineering, University of Manchester. My research
focuses on the field of
Statistical Mechanics of liquids, ices, (biological) glasses, and machine learning applied to soft matter.

I received a BSc and a MSc in theoretical chemistry from the Universita` degli Studi di Milano, Italy,
where I received a
PhD in collaboration with the Ecole normale superieure in Paris for a project aimed
at developing a
model to study exciton transfer in dissipative media. After graduation, I joined the CNRS
in Paris as a postdoctoral scholar with a 2-year fellowship,
developing classical potentials to describe the
interaction of water with heavy ions of
interest in the nuclear industry. Afterwards, I moved to
Princeton University (USA) as a 4-years postdoctoral associate in the group
of Prof. Roberto Car.
Here I worked in understanding the properties of water under
extreme thermodynamic conditions.
After this postdoc, I was appointed to Faculty Associate
Researcher at Princeton University, where I stayed
for one year befor joining IBM Research.
