IEMAP (Italian Energy Materials Acceleration Platform), funded by the Italian Ministry of the Environment and Energy Security, supports the Italian participation to the international cooperation initiative Mission Innovation, 2021-2023
In this project we apply Graph Neural Networks (GNNs), a class of deep learning methods, to predict physical properties and obtain optimal cathode materials for batteries.

EoCoE-II (Energy Oriented Center of Excellence: toward exascale for energy, 2nd phase), 2019-2022
The acitivity performed by us aimed to shed light on carrier dynamics at hetero-interfaces in silicon solar cells. The electronic properties of silicon nanowires were investigated as well.

FP7-PEOPLE-2010-IRSES “Materials Enhancement for Tecnological Applications” (META) coordinated by the NAST Center (University of Rome Tor Vergata), 2012-2014
Adhesion of engineered peptides (bioglues) on metallic surfaces are studied and characterized. Affinity and reactive paths of the metallic surface are described in terms of a multiscale approach, based both on DFT calculations and classical molecular dynamics. The modeling of the interaction of peptides with TiO2, ZnO and Cr surfaces allow to address the selectivity properties of peptides against metallic surfaces. Moreover each peptide is characterized in terms of amino acids revealing their intrinsic function respect to adhesion properties.
