Domenico Corona

PhD Student in Physics - XXXVIII cycle

Department of Physics, University of Rome Tor Vergata and INFN, Via della Ricerca Scientifica 1, 00133 Rome, Italy.

Domenico Corona was born in Rome in 1998, and in the same city he graduated from Liceo Classico “Francesco Vivona”. He received his B.Sc. in Chemistry from the University of Rome “La Sapienza” in 2020, with a thesis in Physical Chemistry supervised by Prof. Dr. Sergio Brutti. DC earned his M.Sc. in Materials Science ( Summa Cum Laude ) from the University of Rome “Tor Vergata” in 2022, with a thesis in Solid State Physics supervised by Prof. Dr. Olivia Pulci and Dr. Francesco Buonocore. DC obtained his M.Eng. in Photonics from the TH Wildau in 2023, with a thesis in Nano- und Oberflächenphysik supervised by Prof. Dr. Carolin Schmitz-Antoniak and Prof. Dr. Olivia Pulci.

In 2022, DC was a Research Intern at the Department of Energy Technologies and Renewable Sources of the Italian National Agency for New Technologies, Energy and Sustainable Economic Development (ENEA, TERIN-ICT-HPC Lab); working on solid-state electrolytes interfaces with Dr. Francesco Buonocore and Dr. Massimo Celino.

In 2023, DC has been a MSCA Early Stage Researcher at the Quantum Systems and Nanomaterials Group of the University of Exeter, within the frame of the DiSeTCoM Project (H2020-MSCA-RISE-2018, G.A. ID: 823728); working on opto-valleytronics in 2D materials with Prof. Dr. Mikhail Portnoi and Dr. Eros Mariani.

Since 2021, DC has been a Scientific Associate at the Italian National Institute for Nuclear Physics (INFN, CSN4); since 2022, he has been a PhD Student in Physics, member of the Condensed Matter Theory Group, concurrently a Young Researcher at the European Theoretical Spectroscopy Facility (ETSF) and a Member of the Mediterranean Institute of Fundamental Physics (MIFP). DC is the winner of 5 merit-based scholarships as Teaching and Laboratory Assistant; of an Erasmus+ Scholarship; and PI of 2 CINECA ISCRA Projects. His current focus is on HPC in Condensed Matter and Materials Physics, for Advanced Energy Materials.
