I am an experimental physicist. In the last ten years, my research was devoted to have a better knowledge of the physical properties and of the hydrogenation/dehydrogenation processes of the most promising materials for solid state hydrogen storage, such as sodium alanate, ammonia borane and lithium amide. In the past I studied also high Tc superconductor, manganites, carbon nanotubes and Li oxides by means of anelastic and infrared spectroscopy. Very recently, I expanded my interests towards ionic liquids and computational physics (ab-initio and DFT calculations on molecules).
