Dr Andrea Floris is a Lecturer at the School of Mathematics and Physics, College of Science, University of Lincoln (United Kingdom).
He is a computational condensed matter physicist with expertise in density functional theory (DFT), molecular self-assembly, computational superconductivity, vibrational properties, and nanostructured systems.
He obtained his Ph.D. in physics at the University of Cagliari (Italy) with a thesis focussed on the implementation and application of DFT for Superconductors (SCDFT), a theory able to predict the critical temperature of conventional superconductors in the absence of empirical parameters. In 2004 he moved to Freie Universität Berlin, where he worked several years in further developing and applying the SCDFT theory to many materials under different conditions of pressure and electron-phonon coupling. In 2007-2013, he also was visiting researcher at the University of Minnesota (USA), where he extended the DFT+U method to the density functional perturbation theory, to calculate phonons spectra of materials…
