Dr. Filippo Troiani

B6: Università degli Studi di Modena e Reggio Emilia, Instituto Nanoscienze, Italy

Host ESR 12

Personal profile


Filippo Troiani is permanent Researcher at the Nanoscience Institute of the National Research Council (CNR-Nano) since 2010. He was previously at the Universidad Autonoma of Madrid (Spain) and at the University of Basel (Switzerland). His recent scientific activities include the theoretical investigation of: quantum coherence in molecular systems and/through the simulation of ultrafast optical spectoscopies; quantum phenomena (decoherence, entanglement) in magnetic molecules, and of their use in quantum information processing and quantum sensing.

Filippo has co-authored > 80 scientific contributions, among papers on international journals and book chapters (more than 2300 citations, h-index = 23, according to Web of Science). He is an active partner of a high qualified international research network, including many renowned world-class scientists appearing as co-authors in his papers, and has actively participated to several scientific projects, both national and international.


Filippo Troiani will be involved in the quantum mechanical simulations of 2DES maps, and in the quantitative characterization of quantum entanglement and coherence in light-harvesting systems. He is the supervisor of ESR 12 together with Elisa Molinari.
