Research interests

My PhD thesis in Murcia (Spain) focused on the multiscale simulation of the vibrational relaxation of peptides in liquid solvents, exploring a wide range of simulations techniques, such as molecular dynamics, hybrid quantum/classical perturbative treatments and hybrid quantum/classical simulations. Afterwards, motivated by expanding my knowledge in biological systems and additional computational approaches I moved to Lisbon (Portugal) to work as postdoc in the protein folding field. There, I developed coarse grained models to study how proteins with physical knots are able to fold into their native structure. At the beginning of 2014, I came to Italy to work, first in the ScolesÂ’ group in Udine and now in the Laio's group in SISSA (Trieste), in a multidisciplinary approach for the design of peptides as probes for the molecular recognition of protein biomarkers.
