Dr Davide Tiana

Funded Investigator Modelling
University College Cork


Davide did his studies at the University of Milan obtaining a a Master in Inorganic and Physical Chemistry (2007, Final Mark 110/110) and a PhD in Computational and Theoretical Chemistry (2010). He then did 6 years of PostDoc working in several prestigious Universities among which 6 months at the University of Oxford and 2 years at the Ecole Polytechnique of Lausanne. Davide moved to Ireland in 2017 as a lecturer in inorganic chemistry at the University College Cork (UCC). In 2018 he joined SSPC and he became associated to the Tyndall National Institute.

At present Davide is leading his independent group using computational chemistry to study, understand and explain chemistry. The research interests of Dr Tiana’s group are wide spreading from the developing of new models for better explain chemical interactions (e.g. chemical bonding, dispersion forces) to design of new molecules (e.g. nanodrugs, catalyst).
