I am professor in the Statistical and Biological Physics sector in the International School for Advanced Studies (SISSA), Trieste. I work mainly on the development of techniques related to enhancing the capability of computer simulations to provide predictive answers for complex heterogeneous systems, in particular for biomolecules. A more detailed description of my activity can be found in the Research page.
