Gagliardi Research Group
The Gagliardi group develops novel quantum chemical methods and applies them to study phenomena related to sustainable energies, with special focus on chemical systems relevant to catalysis, spectroscopy, photochemistry, and gas separation. We are interested in modeling molecular species, materials, and interfaces. We explore actinide and transactinide chemistry, with the aim of understanding the chemical bonding in molecular species and the processes that govern the formation of actinide-based materials relevant to the spent nuclear fuel reprocessing. We also explore phenomena related to gas separation. Read more about the Gagliardi Group research on the research overview page.
As part of The American Chemical Society (ACS) 253rd NATIONAL MEETING & EXPOSITION on Advanced Materials, Technologies, Systems & Processes, April 2-6, 2017, in San Francisco, there will be a WOMEN IN COMP breakfast on Tuesday, April 4, at 7 a.m. This is a mentorship opportunity for female postdoctoral scholars.

In July 2017, the Minnesota Workshop on ab initio Modeling in Solid State Chemistry with CRYSTAL will be held at the University of Minnesota's Minneapolis campus. For details and registration (closes on May 2, 2017), look here and here.
