WHO AM I ? 

Ho ottenuto il mio dottorato in chimica nel 1997 presso l’Università di Roma “La Sapienza”. Ho insegnato ed effettuato attività di ricerca in diverse università in Italia, Olanda, Germania e ora lavoro nel Regno Unito. Sono affascinato dallo studio della natura con modelli teorici e computazionali. La mia ricerca scientifica è focalizzata sullo studio di sistemi molecolari di interesse biologico utilizzando la tecnica della simulazione di Dinamica Molecolare. Ho anche sviluppato un web server per l’analisi statistica a livello di amminoacidi dell’effetto di mutazioni casuali indotte da metodi casuali di mutagenesi. Il server è attualmente ospitato in questo sito. Ho una lunga esperienza nell’insegnamento in materie che abbracciano matematica, fisica, chimica fisica, chimica computazionale e modellistica molecolare. Sono attivo nel comunicare la scienza per scopi didattici nell’area della chimica fisica, della chimica computazionale e della modellistica molecolare. Informatica, elettronica, programmazione, microscopia, entomologia, matematica ricreativa e linguistica computazionale.


I received my Ph.D. in chemistry in 1997 at the University of Rome “La Sapienza”. I led teaching and research activities at different universities in Italy, The Netherlands, Germany and now in the UK. I am fascinated by the study of nature with theoretical models and computational. My scientific research is focused on the study of molecular systems of biological interest using the technique of Molecular Dynamics simulation. I have developed a server for statistical analysis at the amino acid level of the effect of random mutations induced by random mutagenesis methods. The server is currently hosted here.  I have a long experience in teaching activity in subjects spanning from mathematics, physics, physical chemistry, computational chemistry, and molecular modeling. I am also active in communicating science for didactic purpose in the area of physical chemistry, computational chemistry, and molecular modeling. I have several other interests and hobbies as video/photography, robotics, computer vision, electronics, programming, microscopy, entomology, recreational mathematics and computational linguistics.

Ich bin fasziniert vom Studium der Natur mit theoretischen und theoretischen Modellen. Meine wissenschaftliche Forschung konzentriert sich auf das Studium molekularer Systeme von biologischem Interesse mit der Molekular Dynamics Simulationstechnik. Ich habe auch einen Web-Server für die statistische Analyse auf der Aminosäure-Ebene der Wirkung zufälliger Mutationen entwickelt, die durch zufällige Methoden der Mutagenese induziert werden. Der Server ist derzeit auf dieser Site gehostet. Ich habe eine lange Erfahrung im Unterrichten von Fächern in Mathematik, Physik, physikalischer Chemie, Computerchemie und molekularem Modellieren. Ich bin aktiv in der Vermittlung von Wissenschaft für Bildungszwecke in den Bereichen physikalische Chemie, Computerchemie und molekulare Modellierung. Informatik, Elektronik, Programmierung, Mikroskopie, Entomologie, Freizeitmathematik und Computerlinguistik.


MY RESEARCH  

In my blog you will find also information about my research. More information on my current project can be find here. If you are interested to work on a PhD thesis based on my project, I can only consider, at the moment, applications from self-funded prospective home and international PhD students. In this case, you are welcome to send me a CV to: droccatano (at) lincoln (dot) ac (dot) uk.
