Born: December 27, 1954; Busseto (Italy)
Nationality: Italian
Education: University of Parma: Doctor in Chemisty 1979.
Positions: • Researcher University of Parma 19831999.
• Associate Professor University of Parma 19992002.
• Full Professor University of Parma 2002 – today.
Scientific activity
Main fields of research:
• Molecular interactions (1984  1992 )
• Group theory in Chemistry (1984  1992)
• Quantum chemical solvation models (1986  today)
• Theory of electric and magnetic response properties of molecules in dense phases (1994  today)
Major scientific achievements:
Systematic development of electronic structure theories for the study of properties and processes of molecular systems in condensed phases:
• theory for the analytical derivatives of the electronic energy of molecular solutes various methods (HartreeFock, MCSCF, coupledcluster and DFT)
• extension of the DiracFrenkel timedependent variational principle to the nonlinear Hamiltonians for the description of molecular solutes
• theory of the linear response theory for molecules in solution
• theory of the second and higher order electrooptic response functions for molecules in solution and more complex environments for various methods (HartreeFock, MCSCF, coupledcluster and DFT)
• theory of the magnetic properties of solvated molecules for HartreeFock and DFT methods
• theory for the calculation of vibrational properties of molecules in solutions
• generalization of the Onsager theory for the calculations of the local field in molecular solutes
• theory of the macroscopic susceptibilities and birefringences from calculations on molecular solutes
• theories and computational methods for the study of properties of excited states of solvated chromophores, including analytical gradients, and nonequilibrium solvation for several quantum chemical levels, MCSCF, TDDFT and coupledclusters (SACCI, EOMCC).
• theory of the electronic excitation energy transfer between chromophores in solution.
• theory of ExtremePressure Polarizable Continuum Model (XPPCM) for the study the effects of extremehighpressure (p>1GPa) on the molecular properties
• theory of the effect of the pressure on the energy profile of chemical reactions (in collaboration with Prof. Roald Hoffmann, Nobel prize in Chemistry 1981)
• theories for the realtime study of the quantum dynamics of the electrons of molecules in solution.
These theories have found a full acceptance in the international scientific community and have been implemented in the most popular computational quantum chemistry software (Gaussian,Gamess, Dalton,…), As a result, these theories have significantly contributed to extend the fields of application of the computational quantum chemistry as it is testified by order of magnitude of the citations: > 20000 according to WoS/Scopus.
Scientific achievements have regarded other fields of the quantum and theoretical chemistry, as the formulation of the counterpoise correction for the KitauraMorokuma analysis of the intermolecular interaction energy, and the formulation of the method for the “Measurement of the Approximated Symmetries” in the analysis of the geometries of molecular systems.
