About Bernardo Barbiellini

Bernardo Barbiellini is a theoretical physicist who has worked on theories of modern spectroscopic methods such as x-ray inelastic scattering based on synchrotron radiation, STM and positron annihilation. He has developed efficient computational methods, in particular, the Stochastic Gradient Approximation to extract quantum mechanical properties of molecular fragments. He has used electronic structure methods to simulate properties of various materials ranging from high temperature superconductors, colossal magneto-resistant manganites, ice, and CdSe nano-particles. His investigations on the hydrogen bond are steps toward an understanding of biological processes from the basic laws of quantum mechanics. His more recent scientific interests are evolutionary models for proteins based on statistical methods and imaging of individual bio-molecules.
