Prof. Antonio Lagana

Expertise in teaching theoretical and computational chemistry

About Antonio Lagana

 Affiliation: University of Perugia, Italy

My research fields are:

  • development of theoretical and computational approaches mainly addressed to the study of  dynamics and kinetics of both simple and complex systems;
  • rationalization of experimental outcomes with particular concern for molecular beams data;
  • implementation of tools for collaborative computing, virtual environments and virtual communities operating on high performance and high throughput distributed platforms.

Teaching interests: Learning objects on theoretical and computational chemistry
