Silvia Picozzi

Scientist in charge

Silvia Picozzi is responsible of NFFA theory branch. She has experience in materials modeling (mostly simulations based on density functional theory, DFT) on a variety of systems, ranging from semiconductor interfaces to beyond-DFT approaches, from organic crystals to diluted magnetic semiconductors, from Heusler alloys to multiferroics and magnetoelectrics. She has been mainly active in the field of cross-coupling phenomena, with simulations aimed at discovering and optimizing microscopic mechanisms at play in multifunctional materials.

EDUCATION

1998 - Ph.D. in Materials Science at the University of Camerino, Italy

1994 - Physics Degree at the University of L'Aquila, Italy
