Two Marie Curie fellowships for interdisciplinary research in Theoretical Chemistry

The group of Prof. Paola Gori-Giorgi will host two Marie Curie fellows who will work on interdisciplinary fundamental research at the forefront of Mathematics, Physics and Theoretical Chemistry.

Augusto Gerolin is a young mathematician who will work on the formal aspects of an original approach developed by Gori-Giorgi and her coworker Michael Seidl to attack the long-standing problem of correlation between the electrons in quantum chemical calculations. This approach can be mapped into an optimal transport problem, a field of Mathematics and Economics, which was the subject of Gerolin's PhD thesis. His Marie Curie fellowship has been awarded by the Mathematics panel.

Ziad Musslimani is full professor at Florida State University. He will use his long-standing expertise in modeling Bose-Einstein condensation and systems in the presence of disorder to apply the same methodology developed by Gori-Giorgi and coworkers to this kind of problems, addressing several interesting physical questions. His Marie Curie fellowship has been awarded by the Physics panel.
