Pietro Armienti

  • Board Member

Professor Pietro Armienti is expert in thermodynamics of petrologic processes, he has developed image analysis and stereologic techniques to derive constraints on the time scales of magmatic crystallization to describe and predict the evolution of volcanic systems in the areas of Phlegraean Fields (Italy), Mt Etna (Italy), Lanzarote (Canarias) and North Victoria Land (Antarctica).
He was coordinator of the researches on Cenozoic igneous activity in the Italian Antarctic Program and of the Environment Project on Etna Volcano. His antarctic curriculum includes six participations to the italian antarctic expeditions, during which he organized the field work, discovered a new active volcano and set the basis for the recognition of the early phases of igneous activity on the Ross Sea margin of the Transantarctic Mountains.

Sergio Rampino

  • Board Member

Sergio Rampino was born in Mesagne (Apulia, Italy) in 1984. He graduated with honors in Chemistry (2007) and Letters (2012) at the University of Perugia (Umbria, Italy), where he also got a PhD in Chemistry (2011). Since 2017 he is a research fellow (RTD L.240/10 A) in theoretical and computational chemistry at the Scuola Normale Superiore in Pisa. His research, partly carried out in several European research and computing centres, has focused on several topics ranging from quantum dynamics of elementary reactions to relativistic density-functional theory, chemical-bond analysis, data formats and workflows for computational chemistry, grid computing and high-performance computing. In 2016 he was awarded the 'Eolo Scrocco' prize by the Division of Theoretical and Computational Chemistry of the Italian Chemical Society.

Henrik Koch

  • Board Member

Henrik Koch received his PhD from Aarhus University (Denmark) in Theoretical Chemistry. In 2002 he was appointed Full Professor at the Department of Chemistry, NTNU (Norway). Since 2018, he is Full Professor in Theoretical Chemistry at Scuola Normale Superiore, Pisa. He was visiting Scholar at the Department of Chemistry and the Pulse Institute, Stanford University (USA) for two years (2014-2016). His main research interests focus on the development and application of many-body theories, in particular, coupled cluster theory and response theory. Mainly with applications to ground and excited state dynamics, and molecular properties in general. Recently, his efforts are centered on the development of accurate computational models for the interaction between advanced light sources and matter. He has since 1989 been a main developer of the quantum chemistry code DALTON and is currently focusing on the transition to Graphical Processing Units (GPUs).

Chiara Maria Angela Roda

  • Board Member

She is Associate Professor of Physics at the University of Pisa. Since the beginning of her scientific career she collaborates with the Istituto Nazionale of Fisica Nucleare (INFN). She works in experimental physics and is presently participating in the ATLAS experiment held at CERN Laboratory in Geneva and leading the ATLAS group in Pisa. She has been one of the Physicists that discovered the Higgs boson in 2012. Her research activities include both data analysis and new detector developments. In physics analysis her work addresses both precision measurements and new particles searches. New detector development activities include track triggers and hadronic-calorimetry. In ATLAS, an international collaboration of about 2000 physicists, she has leading and management roles. She co-teaches the course of experimental laboratory in particle physics at the Department of Physics and the course of mechanics and thermodynamic at the Department of Biomedical Engineering.
