Filippo De Angelis is a Senior Research Scientist and deputy director at the CNR Institute of Molecular Sciences and Technology, in Perugia, Italy. He is the founder and co-leader of the Computational Laboratory for Hybrid/Organic Photovoltaics in Perugia. He earned a BS in Chemistry 1996 and a PhD in Theoretical Inorganic Chemistry in 1999, both from the University of Perugia, Italy. He is an expert in the development and application of first principles computational methods to the simulation of the structural, electronic and optical properties of metallorganic, inorganic and hybrid materials and molecules and related interfaces. The main application studies are in the field of solar energy materials, with emphasis on dye-sensitized and perovskite solar cells. His main contribution constitutes in the study of the excited states of dyes and perovskite absorbers, in the modelling of inorganic semiconductors and in the alignment of energy levels at sensitized semiconductor interfaces. Additional areas of expertise are in the field of non-linear optics, luminescent materials for OLEDs and organometallic reactivity and catalysis. He is the 2007 recipient of the Raffaello Nasini Gold Medal of the Inorganic Chemistry Division of the Italian Chemical Society.
