Leonardo Guidoni obtained a Master in Physics cum laude in 1996 working on strongly correlated systems and quantum magnetism. He carried out a PhD at the International School for Advanced Studies (SISSA, Trieste) under the supervision of Prof. Paolo Carloni and Vincent Torre with a thesis on the physical and chemical mechanisms regulating the molecular behaviour of membrane ionic channels. From 2000 to 2002 he worked as post-doctoral fellow in the group of Prof. Ursula Rothlisberger in the Department of Inorganic Chemistry at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (ETH) of Zurich, Switzerland. In 2002 he follows the same group in the Institute of Chemical Science and Engineering at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology of Lausanne (EPFL), where he worked up to end 2004. During these years he used mixed quantum/classical first principles techniques to address challenging problems in chemistry and biochemistry such as the primary steps in photoreceptors light absorption and the rational design of biomimetic compounds.
In 2004 he obtained a "Brain drain" contract professorship in Computational Biophysics and Biochemistry at the Physics Department of the university of Rome "La Sapienza". He was invited professor in 2005 at EPFL in Lausanne and in 2006 at the Leiden University. In 2007 he obtained the qualification to French university professor in Chemistry. In 2008 he became Associate professor in Chemical Foundations of Technologies in the Chemistry Department of the University of L'Aquila.
Leonardo Guidoni's scientific activity covers a wide range of fields in computational biophysics, biochemistry and chemistry. Mostly he used first principles methods in combination with classical molecular dynamics to study electronic, dynamical and spectroscopic properties of small molecules in solution and in biological macromolecules. He participated as speaker to more than 30 international conferences, 8 times as invited speaker.
His scientific production is published on international journals in the fields of Chemistry, Physics, Biochemistry and Biophysics, among them; Angewandte Chemie, JACS, Physical Review Letters, Proteins and Biochemistry. According to ISI web of Science, his papers were cited more than 500 times.
Leonardo Guidoni taught Chemistry and Physics subjects in programs in Engineering (at the University of L'Aquila) and in Physics (at the University of Rome "La Sapienza") at different levels (Bachelor, Master, PhD). He was supervisor and co-supervisor of several PhD, Bachelor and Master Thesis in Physics and in Chemistry.
Between 2006 and 2007 he was the scientific supervisor of a post-doctoral fellow granted by the CASPUR supercomputing centre on Rome on a project research proposed by him on Quantum Monte Carlo. In april 2007 he was principal and local organizer of the workshop "Ab initio modelling of biomolecules: towards computational spectroscopy", supported by European networks Psi-k and Simbioma. He is currently spokenperson of the biophysics working group of the Psi-k European network. Between 2007 and 2008 he was member of the steering committee of the "Erasmus Mundus ATOSIM" in collaboration with the ENS in Lyon and the University of Amsterdam. Currently he is involved in the "Erasmus Mundus" program Mathmods. Since January 2009 he is member of the scientific committee of the PhD "Physical and Mathematical Engineering and Modelling" at the University of L'Aquila. In 2009 he won, as principal investigator, an ERC grant "Ideas" on Multiscale Modelling with electron correlation.
