Danila Amoroso

Danila Amoroso worked within NFFA-Trieste as CNR-SPIN Postdoc from 2018 to October 2021. She has many years of experience in theoretical characterization of multifunctional materials by means of first-principles calculations based on Density Functional Theory. During her postdoc, a special emphasis has been put on the analysis of electronic, structural, ferroelectric and dynamical properties. Her research topic focused on the study of the new class of materials exhibiting 2D magnetism. She established collaborations with experimentalists in order to support explanation and/or cross-check of the experimental observations via of ab-initio calculations.
