Welcome Emanuele Bosoni at ICMAB!

Ciao people! My name is Emanuele and I've just joined the Theory and Simulation unit, working with Alberto Garcia. I'm originally from Italy, but I feel pretty European after living in 4 different countries in the past 5 years. I just finished my PhD program in Dublin and here I work as maintainer/developer of the software aiida-siesta. Aiida-siesta allows to run quantum-mechanical simulations on many systems in an automatic way. The idea is to unlock the power of modern supercomputer in order to create databases of calculated material properties that can then be explored in search for materials with ad-hoc characteristics.

I love sports, swimming and judo mostly. Moreover I like to travel and admire the beauty of the Creation (see picture for a reference!). I'm very exited for this new adventure in Barcelona, I look forward to explore new science and meet new people!
