Department Seminar: Professor Francesco Evangelista
Professor Evangelista's theoretical chemistry research focus is the development of new electronic structure methods to address chemical phenomena that are not well understood. Having a predilection for rigorous theoretical approaches that follow from first principles, his research group is particularly fond of many-body methods (e.g. coupled cluster theory), but doesn't shy away from density functional theory.
Evangelista earned his doctorate in chemistry from the University of Georgia, his master's in physical chemistry from the Universitiy of Pisa, and his undergraduate degree from the Scuola Normale Superiore di Pisa. He also was an Alexander von Humboldt Junior Fellow in Mainz, Germany, and a post-doctoral associate at Yale University. He has been a professor at Emory University since 2013.
