Luca Braglia

CNR-IOM Postdoc

Luca Braglia's postdoctoral activity is focused on the investigation of heterogeneous catalysis by means of X-ray absorption spectroscopy. His work is related to the development and the use of the in-situ reaction cell at APE-HE beamline for NEXAFS experiments. All the studies are supported by theoretical calculations with FDMNES, FEFF, CTM4XAS and VASP codes. The catalytic systems of interests are mainly porous materials with single active sites as: zeolites and metal-organic frameworks (MOFs).
