I studied Physics at the University of Buenos Aires (Argentina) where I graduated in 1986. I then moved to SISSA/ISAS in Trieste (Italy) to study for my PhD, but after obtaining an MPhil, supervised by Erio Tosatti, I was given the opportunity to continue at IBM Zurich under the supervision of Michele Parrinello. In 1993 I obtained by PhD from ETH-Zurich (Switzerland).  Following this, I spent about two years as a postdoc in ENS-Lyon (France) working with Jean-Pierre Hansen, to move back to Trieste but now to ICTP, where for 5 years I was in charge of organizing activities in the area of Electronic Structure and more generally Computational Materials Modeling.
Research Themes
My main research line at present is the modeling and simulation of irradiation processes at the first principles level.
