Researcher at the Institute for Organic Synthesis and Photoreactivity (ISOF).
Research interests: theoretical and computational chemistry.
Alessandra Degli Esposti (1957 – Arezzo, Italy) got her degree in Industrial Chemistry at the University of Bologna (1982, summa cum laude). After a period of study in London (1983) she got her position as a researcher of the Consiglio Nazionale delle Ricerche (CNR) in Bologna (1984) by the Institute of Molecular Spectroscopy. In 1988-1989 she was granted a research fellowship by NATO to collaborate with H.-J. Werner group in the Theoretische Chemie Department in Bielefeld (Germany).Since 2002 she is a researcher at the Institute for Organic Synthesis and Photoreactivity (ISOF).
She is the author of 51 ISI publications.
Her present scientific interests are chiefly in the field of theoretical investigations of photoinduced processes and electron-hole transport using DFT and TD-DFT methods (Gaussian 09) to study large organic and organometallic molecular systems. Her experience is mainly in the field of molecular electronic, vibrational and rotational spectroscopies. Her scientific background is based on the development and application of quantum mechanical computational methods for the accurate study of small molecular systems and van der Waals complexes (MOLPRO, HIBRIDON).
