Research

I am dedicated to research on transport phenomena of heat or charge, specifically on their theoretical description in relation to applications in energy-production technologies. I rely on quantum statistical physics and computational materials science to tackle fundamental problems emerged in energy-harvesting technologies based on thermoelectric, thermionic, electrocaloric, thermocapacitive and thermogalvanic effects. Overall, my research activities have the twofold ambition of advancing knowledge in fundamental physics and then using these advancements to drive or promote technological progress. More precisely, my work deals with the development and usage of theoretical methods to describe transport phenomena at various scales and approximation levels, including:
