Ritratto di francesco.sciortino@uniroma1.it

Francesco Sciortino è professore ordinario all'Università di Roma "La Sapienza". Nel corso degli anni si è interessato alla termodinamica di liquidi anomali, alle transizione vetrosa (sia in sistemi atomici che colloidali) e più recentemente al self-assembly di particelle colloidali formate da DNA, coniugando esperimenti, modellizzazione teorica e simulazioni numeriche. Il suo lavoro è stato finanziato anche da un ERC Advanced grant. Informazioni più dettagliate sul suo CV e sulle sue pubblicazioni sono disponibili sul sito https://www.roma1.infn.it/~sciortif/publications.htm

 

Attenzione: Durante il periodo di sospensione della didattica (COVID-19) le lezioni proseguiranno in modalita' blended. Si prega di fare riferimento a
