Research interests

    My research interests are focused on the modeling of realistic materials by means of computational tools, mainly Density Functional Theory (DFT).

    In particular, the topics I am currently working on are:

    • Study of the effects of spin-orbit coupling on materials, which can find applications e.g. in spintronics;
    • Multiferroic materials and the possible coexistence of ferroelectricity and metallicity;  
    • Implementation of computational methods on DFT codes.

    Moreover I am interested in group theory and in its applications to crystallography and, in general, to solid state physics.
