Creativity takes courage
Everything you can imagine is real.

A tentative mariagge of art and science

about Me
“Learn the rules like a pro, so you can break them like an artist.”

I'm a researcher with a variety of interests. I currently works as a researcher at the Italian National Council of Research (CNR) on topics devoted to the characterization and development of new materials. I graduated in chemistry in 1999 with a thesis on magnetic behavior of ternary compounds based on rare earth elements. After working in the chemical industry in an R & D lab I returned to university to get a PhD in chemical sciences in 2005. I spent a year in Norway as a post-doctoral researcher on statistical analysis and during my PhD I spent some time studying at the Academy of Fine Arts in Vienna, and this influenced my passion for art.  I'm interested in 3d since 2005. My interests also focus on lighting and rendering, I'm a teacher for for scientific visualization

Nature is a haunted house--but Art--is a house that tries to be haunted
