Prof. Dr. Alessio Gagliardi
Academic Career and Research Areas
Prof. Gagliardi research is on the development and application of numerical models for the simulation of nanostructured devices. His focus is on new solar cells (organic semiconductors based on perovskite), electrochemical systems (fuel cells, batteries) and organic semiconductor materials. The development of new models ranges from the nanoscale (Density Functional Theory, Quantum Green Functions) through the mesoscale (Kinetic Monte Carlo) to the macroscopic scale (drift diffusion, continuum models). He is also a developer of TiberCAD and the GDFTB software. His latest research is on multiscale modeling for organic semiconductors and the use of machine/deep learning approaches in material science.
After studying engineering at the University of Rome Tor Vergata (Italy), Professor Gagliardi received his doctorate in physics from the University of Paderborn in 2007. He later worked as a postdoc at the Bremen Center for Computing Materials and in Rome before being appointed Tenure Track Assistant Professor at TUM in 2014. Since 2020 he is Associate Professor at TUM.
