Ph.D. thesis title: “Towards Understanding High-Pressure Chemistry”
Supervisor: Prof. Artem R. Oganov
Christian obtained his Bachelor’s Degree in Chemistry and Industrial Chemistry. University of Study of INSUBRIA, Como (Italy). He was graduated with 110/110 and it was obtained in only 2 years with thesis title: “Tunnel Effect in Carbon Nanotubes – Simplified Models”. Supervisor was Dr. Massimo Mella. Christian continued his studies in Milano where he obtained Master of Science in Chemistry at University of Milano, Milano (Italy). He was graduated with 110/110 and praise with thesis title: “Development of novel topological tools for the real space investigation of spin density in organometallic complexes”. Supervisors were Dr. Leonardo Lo Presti and Dr. Carlo Gatti. After that, Christian spent his first of PhD study at the Novosibirsk State University under supervision of Prof. Elena V. Boldyreva focusing in the Theoretical field of Charge Density with different approaches in Quantum Chemical Topology. During this time he developed Bader’s Theory and applied to solve specific problem in solid sate matter as in gas phase. Furthermore, in the 2018 Christian transferred his PhD into SkolTech under supervision of Prof. Artem R. Oganov is searching to explain the chemical bond at high pressure being seen in literature that the application of high pressure (hundreds of gigapascals) to materials, besides modifying their properties changes dramatically their reactivity.
