Edoardo Mosconi obtained his PhD degree in 2011 in theoretical chemistry from University of Perugia under the supervision of Prof. Antonio Sgamellotti and Dr Filippo De Angelis, working on Computational Modeling of Hybrid/Organic Photovoltaics and Complex Reaction Mechanisms. From January 2012 he is a Post Doctoral Researcher at CNR Institute of Molecular Sciences and Technology (ISTM-CNR) in Perugia, at the Computational Laboratory for Hybrid/Organic Photovoltaics (CLHYO). His main research interests are in the field of new generation photovoltaics (Dye Sensitized Solar Cells, Organic Photovoltaics, and Perovskite Solar Cells), employing DFT, TDDFT, ab initio Car–Parrinello molecular dynamics and GW methods to predict and interpret the optical and electronic properties of materials and interfaces.
