Stefano Piana-Agostinetti develops methods for accurate and efficient simulation of biomolecular systems. He earned a Ph.D. in chemistry from the International School for Advanced Studies of Trieste, and holds a B.S. in bioinorganic chemistry from the University of Florence. Previously, Stefano was a researcher at Curtin University in Perth and held postdoctoral fellowships in Switzerland at both the Ecole Polytechnique Federale and the Eidgenössische Technische Hochschule. His scientific research interests have focused on the use of ab initio and classical molecular dynamics to study proteins, DNA, crystals, and organic catalysts. Outside of work, Stefano likes the outdoors, almost every sport, and good food and wine.
