Francesco obtained his PhD in Rome and since 2004 is Assistant Professor at the Chemical Division of the Department of Pharmaceutical Science of the University of Catania, Italy. He spent some months during 2005 and 2006 in our lab to improve his knowledge of crystallography. His principal area of research is the comparison of experimental X-ray diffraction data with computationally simulated data. The prediction of crystal morphology, polymorphism, atomic displacement parameters (adp), as well as the physico-chemical properties of biologically active compounds are among his interests.
