Francesca Nunzi is a researcher in the disciplinary science sector CHIM / 03 (General Chemistry and Inorganic) at the Department of Chemistry, Biology and Biotechnology of the University of Perugia. She is associated with the Institute of Molecular Sciences and Technologies (CNR-ISTM) of Perugia. She is currently entrusted with the course of Analytical Chemistry (“Laurea Triennale in Chimica”) and of Chemistry for Energy (“Laurea Magistrale in Scienze Chimiche”). Her primary research activities are the characterization of structural and optical properties of innovative materials based on inorganic semiconductors for photovoltaic and photocatalytic applications and the analysis of the chemical bond, particularly in relation to weak chemical interactions, by ab initio and DFT/TDDFT methods.
