I am a Marie Curie Fellow at the University of Liverpool, hosted in the group of Prof. Alessandro Troisi.
MSCA-IF BIOMOSAIC From biopigments to bioelectronics: modeling semiconducting eumelanin-based interfaces
I am working on developing a computational model of eumelanin, the biopigment present in human hair, eyes and skin, as a potential semiconductor in bioelectronic devices. My goal is to unravel its structure-property relationship, and ultimately build a charge transport model able to capture both electronic and ionic conduction.
