Stefano Corni is Full Professor of Physical Chemistry at the Department of Chemical Sciences.

He completed his master degree in Chemistry at the University of Pisa (as a fellow of the Scuola Normale Superiore) and his PhD at the Scuola Normale Superiore of Pisa. He was then postdoctoral associate (2003-2004) and tenure track research scientist (2004-2009) at INFM (National Institute for Condensed Matter Physics) Center S3 in Modena. From 2009 to 2016 he was tenured research scientist and since May 2016 senior research scientist at CNR Institute of Nanoscience in Modena. His main research interests include molecular and nonoplasmonics, protein-surface and protein-nanoparticle interactions, and electron transfer in biomolecules, self-standing and on electrodes. He received many research grants and computer time grants, mostly as principal investigator, both at national and international levels. In 2015 he won an ERC Consolidator grant for his project TAME-Plasmons (2016-2021) that has the goal to develop a theoretical chemistry approach to directly simulate the real time evolution of molecules interacting with plasmons and light. He published over 120 papers in international peer-reviewed journals, cited around 3000 times.
